some of us are 19
and are already terrified of not succeeding
while some of us are 33 but still feel
like a teenage soul who seeks to inspire, have fun
and live carelessly.
some of us are four without ever knowing
what love, warmth, or belonging is while
some of us are 65 with a head full of wrinkled regrets
never genuinely having the courage
to chase one’s bliss.
but despite all this
a special truth remains:
“this is the youngest self
you’ll ever be.”
this is the life you were given
and no matter where you are in your journey
you are never too young or too old to believe that
everything is lost.
you have the gift to start again.
you have the gift
to make mistakes because success demands
the courage to make a fool out of yourself
and still have fun in learning better in the process.
you have the gift to be happy in where you are
as long as you always remember
to keep on growing.
you have the gift of light
that attracts you to good-intentioned people
if you let them in with their love.
you have the gift to keep on persisting.
you have the gift to keep on believing.
you have the gift of a peaceful mind
that knows what is beneficial for your soul
whenever you are caught in a hurricane of doubts.
you have the gift to allow the spirit of confidence
to reign in the essence of your tender being.
you have the gift to show the world
that there is hope even in the darkest parts of yourself
that are lost, broken and sad, but that doesn’t make you
any less than a blessing.
you have the gift to heal.
you have the gift to recover.
you have the gift to change your perspective.
you have the gift of feeling possible again
with everything that excites your whole existence.
you have the gift to make your life a wonderful story.
