When your world is narrowed and skies look grey,
When fond dreams are destroyed and you are in dismay,
When your head is made to hang low or your shoulder is slung,
When harsh blows hit you and angry words are flung,
When stars shine dim and the moon becomes fray,
When sadness fills your hearts and there seems no way…
Give yourself a chance once again.
Rise from the dust and throw away the strain.
Dream hard and dream long.
Fill up your heart with another song.
Stop the hand that touches you wrongly.
Ward away your fears and stand up strongly.
Choose to speak the truth and dare,
Your desire should be present in your stare!
Don’t ask why, don’t look for reasons to stay,
You are a gem; no stress can make you sway.
Others will soon know your worth,
First, YOU have to learn to be in mirth.
You have to see what you can be,
Then, plan for what can set you free.
Look within yourself, say hello to your soul,
You are a princess and a queen, not a mole!
So what if life is harsh? It will be.
Hold on to those who love your ‘me’.
Choose to respect and earn it in turn,
Allow the fire within you to burn.
You will deliver if you are right,
Never give up without a fight.
Stay strong, stay true, stay the way you are,
You are what you want to be – yes, you are the adorable star!
