Dear reader, you are beautiful and amazing, with caring love you should treat yourself.

You’ve never lived as long as you aren’t yourself by the Dreadist

You’ve never lived as long as you aren’t yourself. That’s what I learned as I finally found myself. Spent 21 empty years on this earth, idly waiting Seconds ticking, the sun setting, raising, still nothing

But then I realized, time can heal, but can’t change That’s my job to do, to turn my life happy from strange Awkward, uncomfortable, that’s what my own life felt like

Looking back, all of it was an illusion, fake, dreamlike A nightmare lasting years, but now I am awake and fine I know who I am, writing these lines and enjoying my time

You’ve never lived as long as you aren’t yourself. I know life can be harsh, with it I have also dealt But it’s the hardest if you constantly have to play an act A person who is not you, but who you need to show to the rest

Day in and out, your personal theater seems to have no end You try to force a smile, but inside you are broken, do not pretend It hurts, dark the world turns, every day marking you with another scar

You feel like you’re a failure, doesn’t deserve to be happy, being who you are But you’re wrong, please, don’t make the same mistake that I have done Discover who you are and live your life, don’t be ashamed, do not run

You’ve never lived as long as you aren’t yourself. You might be reading this, screaming “You don’t know how I felt!” You’re right, every story is different, but some things are the same You feel shame as they call your name so they have you to blame

It’s true, life is not a fairy tale and sometimes you need to put on the mask To survive, maybe at home, at school, at work, on the street, it’s a hard task But never forget who you really are, under the shell what protects you

Even in the hardest times, remember the real you and what you want to do Your goals in life, the reason you fight, why you keep going day and night So just say “Despite the fright, I’ll be myself, my future’s bright and I’ll be alright!”

You’ve never lived as long as you aren’t yourself. Imagine, the tale of your life in a book on the shelf One day you will sit down, read the story and think back So please, don’t make yourself feel sad, instead proud and glad

It sounds impossible, but there are people out there just like you, real gems So go far and find who will appreciate you for who you are, make real friends They will accept who you really are, a shining star and at least if nowhere else

But around them be the real you, smiling as even your greatest fear slowly melts You are unique, nice and great, no but, no maybe, yourself you should not hate Start living life! You and not the part you played. I wish you the best, I hope your life will be long and great!
