And it gets better
or you get better
but you realise that hurt people hurt people
and that’s not the kind of person you want to be.
Oh, you of sunflower heart and starlight soul
only ever equipped to nurture
go, go out and grow others.
Learn that you will flourish whatever the conditions.
Listen to the wise and share what you have gathered so far.
Let the memories keep you warm,
for where there is heat, there is light.
How to glow up // Cassandra Fong
