Words from a friend cut deep, statements overheard do pierce,
When hearing how others view you, the emotions stirred are fierce.
Let my heart forgive, so I can focus on what means more.
Give me strength to take the path I’ve never walked before.
A day of new opportunities, to mold who I’ll become.
What matters is where I’m going, not the places I am from.
I will mess up, but that won’t stop me from trying,
I’ll get back up to walk the path, despite the tears I’m crying.
I’m proud of who I am, regardless of what they say.
God only knows what’s in my heart, and He’s not walking away.
