Write yourself a poem

Write yourself a poem
Shower it with kindness
Colour it with joyous and beautiful words
Make it sound perfect
And every sentence priceless
This is how you'll be remembered

Shout it from the roof tops
Drop it in every open mic
Make them stop and take notice
Let them hear it.

Make it sound titanic
Every second epic
Make yourself immortal
And dance on the shoulder of that stands above all

For this is the beauty within you
Nothing can ever take it from you
Those who hear, will never ignore
For you are perfect in every sense of the word

May they know you
May they celebrate you
How you take pride in your scars
And how you never let struggles of this life let you down

So the day they sink your coffin
And hold a toast to your name
May they smile
Let them accompany you with pride
Let them tell tales of who you were
How much you loved
And how beautiful was your heart
Most importantly how priceless were your scars...
Write yourself a poem
Shower it with kindness
Colour it with joyous and beautiful words
Make it sound perfect
And every sentence priceless
This is how you'll be remembered
