Prove Them Wrong


At some point people will make you ask why
When they hurt your heart and make you cry
That is the time when you have to try


Close your eyes and slowly rewind
Change the default settings of your mind
Prepare yourself to be amazed of what you might find


Turn your tears into smiles
You can throw away those dusty, old files
You’ve already made it through those trials


Allow yourself to let it go
Be thankful for all it made you know
Appreciate how it made you grow


Take that old pain and make it into something new
And in it all your beauty will shine through
In it they will see the amazing you


Embrace all the challenges you’ve ever met
Don’t look back with any regret
Tell the world; You haven’t seen the best of me yet!


Be thankful for all of the pain
Be grateful for what it made you gain
Don’t let that hurt be all in vain


Say it out loud with the biggest glee:
“I am not vengeful. I set you free.
Thank you so much for inspiring me! ”


By this you have proved them all wrong
They thought they were the ones who were strong
But the truth is it was you all along

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
