Wake up early. Drink coffee. Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight, your mind right and your head up. Do well, live well and dress really well. Do what you love, love what you do. It is time to start living.
Thank you for the reminder. Needed to read this. (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

Please…Take it From Me

oktotalk:

Nobody thinks to look behind the door,
to question the act that you put on.
Who would sit in the corner and cower?
Who would give someone that kind of power?

It’s silly to lose yourself to someone,
to change yourself completely.
Don’t put yourself in that position,
Please, take it from me.

Embrace your spirit and don’t let go,
it’s what makes your colors show.
Closing yourself off only hurts you more,
only gives them what they want.

Don’t convince yourself it’s a one time thing,
The bigger the lie, the more pain it’ll bring.
It’s not just a bruise or an argument gotten out of hand,
Take it from me, I understand.

You don’t deserve it, you did nothing wrong.
Don’t let them make you feel like their prey.
Hold your head up high,
and force yourself to walk away.

People will care,
just let them in.
Show the scars you’ve been ashamed they might see,
Please…take it from me.

I touch you knowing we weren’t born tomorrow,
and somehow, each of us will help the other live,
and somewhere, each of us must help the other die.
