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.
