Today you will rise against the pain,
by taking the first step to never being the same.
People have said many things about you, me and others that are wrong,
I guess it’s easy to look for the worst and expect a swan song.
But you are more than what the papers would say,
rumors and lies that are made up day after day.
Today you will be stronger and remember what is true,
that no matter what happens, you should be you.
Thank you for realizing that you are more,
Now help others remember so that they can soar.
