Dear little sister, the journey is long.
Don’t let confidence depart from your palms.
Don’t leave your esteem behind.
Don’t play catch up with your dreams.
Scream for help if it gets dark.
If scary thoughts consume your mind.
If you fall out of love with yourself.
Listen to your heart.
Dear little sister, you can be everything.
You are everything.
Everything is you, and us and love.
Love yourself like love was everything you knew.
