They were wrong

“And if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself;
get a better mirror,
look a little closer,
stare a little longer.
because there’s something inside you
that made you keep trying
despite everyone who told you to quit.
you built a cast around your broken heart,
and signed it yourself
you signed it :
“they were wrong”
