Be Strong in the World by Grace

Be strong in the world.
Because someone will try to strip you of your dignity
Stand tall in the world.
Because someone will try to tower over you
Don’t hide from the world.
Because someone will try to wipe your mark off of it
 
Look for the light that cowers from darkness and grab it with your bare hands;
Raise it above your head for everyone to see and never let go of it.
Be proud of all the good that you do, but show humility and grace.
Let tears rush down your face in a torrent flow and don’t be ashamed.
 
Because someone is going to criticize you no matter what you do
And someone is going to spread rumors with a greedy mouth
And use their icy eyes and harden heart to stare you down.
you must rise above it all because nobody sympathizes

    With a coward.

    A ‘fraidy cat.

   An average Joe.

 
Don’t settle for average.
Settle for extraordinary.
Be the change you want to see in the world’ isn’t just a saying.

It’s the truth.
