Lecture of Hope

There's time enough to love
and to trust yet still.
First, you must grow.
Depend on yourself.
Strength your own roots
before trying to graft onto
another's root stock.
Invest in your soul.
Find out who you are,
the impossible.
Be Somebody.
Lift yourself up in your own eyes
See past the failures...
the accomplishments need to be
acknowledged to yourself.
Youth will always be with you,
in Death your hand stills for always.
Waste not the grains of sand
that trickles the Hourglass.

Come to love yourself.
Be not afraid.
______ will be with you, Always.
