I ask you, my dear
why do you live in the fear?
They don’t appreciate your light
nor understand how you persevere.
 
And yet, you give your power away
to others whose allegiances stray.
Taking a risk for loyalty is a game
and you may be losing when you play.

Those who do not deserve you
will fade away, it's true.
You'll feel better, grow stronger,
and find a way to survive, you always do.
 
Don't let anyone knock you down,
throw their stuff on you or break your heart,
you deserve better, you are better,
and believe in yourself, you’re smart.
 
So my dear, it is clear,
that you deserve more than the fear.
Please be true - and I’ll give you a clue –
to the wonderful, deserving YOU.
