Glow - Poem by Angelica Duardo

I’ll take you as a challenge
I’ll try to make you change
First steps are known the hardest
But they are not that complex

Just put one foot in front of the other
Then take your next step beyond the last
Continue like that until your final hour
Don’t you ever give up, even if you’re really tired

Take a break when ever your life’s at stake
Don’t hesitate to recognize all your mistakes
You must know there’s no fragility in recognition
Remember always, there’s no perfection within our nature

Proclaim your happiness, always
Don’t ever hate someone, ever
Never dare to say never
Always be true to yourself

Be wise with actions, not words
Never forget the absence of strength in swords
Remember always the power of words
And take the time to care for those you adore

Dreams are a magical way to cry away our tears
Don’t ever let anyone decide what you should dream or how you should feel
Believe always in your true needs
Don’t take no for an answer, fight for your beliefs

Don’t fight with swords, bomb or actions
Fight with words, they are much wiser
See the beauty in everything around you
Also in that which might even disgust you

Time is ephemeral,
Life is so real
Pain is sublime, indeed
Love is the safest seed to feed with

All there is to know
Is that there is no tomorrow assured
What has been is past
So don’t keep crying for what’s been done

Live the present, learn from the past
But always take the time to think about your future times
Dream the stupidest dreams you could ever dream
Then go out there and make them real

Don’t worry for what’s not worth it
Just ride the boat and sway away with the flow
Always know you never really know
Keep it simple, keep it humble, keep it low

There’s so much more for us to learn
There are no more advices left here to be shown
Maybe next time you’ll let me know
What I need to change, so I can start to grow [glow]
