A passing lyric

Your life matters

Every single day

i want you to say 

your life matters

scream loud 

into the mirror

scream until it shatters 

love yourself 

hardcore love 

take the hate 

and rise above

you're doing great 

you're doing fine 

just give yourself 

a bit of time

Don't need to win 

just run the race 

and do it with 

a smile on your face 

black or white 

thin or fatter 

scream it loud 

YOUR LIFE MATTERS

    You'd have to be mentally unwell to say anything else surely?

    What's important right now is to see that other peoples lives matter. Not to be selfish. Not to be apathetic.

      As a person who knows and works with people who are “mentally unwell” I can say that some people in the world just need reminded every so often how amazing they are.

      Also this poem is from one person to another saying “YOUR life matters” is recognising the life of others. Which kinda makes your notion redundant.

      Not to be apathetic to your comment though. 😊

        I’d just like to add as I forgot to earlier,
        My reply is not negative in anyway
        I actually like and appreciate when people challenge me on my opinions. It’s sometimes the only way conversations can happen so I appreciate the time you take to do so. 😊
