we grab too tightly
at that which is not ours.

and wish so hard for hearts
with heads lost in the stars.

reach out for some attention
from minds racing fast as cars.

seek love and affection
from hearts trapped behind bars.

forgetting to look in the mirror
and first mend our own scars.

flat land to the horizon
cacti lined streets
sun blinding
mountain peaks like
dragon's teeth
eating cotton candy skies

trust yourself, love yourself, be yourself.
be kind, you truly don't know what another person is going through.
if you need help, ask. if you don't understand, ask.
even if you don't need help or even if you do understand, still ask--
someone may be able to teach you something new!
be curious. ask why.
define your success by something other than money.
put yourself first,
it's not selfish, it's necessary.
i love you,
i believe in you,
i respect you.
i hope you live out all of your wildest dreams.
stay gold.

harsh waves meet the shore,
as your sharp tongue meets our ears,
we drown and fade away.

once gifted with
true kindness and compassion
i learned love.
