Who Me?

Seeing Double

I’m not sure where you are in life as you’re reading this right now.

I can’t see your past, joys or pain, or what makes you furrow your brow.

I can’t walk where you have walked or experience where you have been.

You’ve journeyed on a different road than I have even been.

I’m not sure where you are in life as you’re reading this today.

You could be here in the moment or a million miles away,

Wishing things were different, happy the way they are,

Looking for more answers, wishing on any star.

From the hardest times to the memories so sweet

It’s not easy to describe it all to the new friends that you meet.

You’re complex and you’re simple, you’re deep and you’re wide.

And no I’m not talking about your physical size.

“Life’s not always fair,” they say and you know that all too well.

You’ve experienced both the ups and downs and you have much to tell.

You have felt the sting of rejection. You have felt the arms of love.

You’ve seen both sides, good and bad, sometimes you’ve risen above.

You, by yourself, just the way you are is exactly who you should be.

No matter where you are right now, no matter how you came,

You need to know something important and you’ll never be the same.

There is something about you that’s different, different than all the rest.

No one else can be a very good you even if they try their best.

There are times when you feel like you’re not enough, more times than you want to admit.

If I could look you right in the eyes, I would tell you this.

You, by yourself, just the way you are is exactly who you should be.

You are enough and more, my friend. I hope today or someday you will agree.

You have more strength and wisdom inside you than you will ever know.

There’s more inside you that we’re all eager to see,

From your great and glorious victories to the agony of your defeats.

Cause life isn’t about winning it all,

It’s about believing and trying and getting up when you fall.

You have more strength and wisdom inside you than you will ever know.

You have what it takes, you’re brilliant and smart and that you will never outgrow.

Let loose those things that make you YOU and be proud of who you are.

When you hold back we all miss out on the amazing person you are…so far.

And if you need a word of encouragement, please reach out to me.

I’m just like you with joys and pains and a past that remembers my name.

Together we must cheer each other through all life has to offer.

“I’m here for you whenever you need,” said one friend to another.
