Birthday note to self
Here’s to another year of fighting fears,
demons and self-doubts,
as well as trying to stay smart,
relevant and unique from the rest.
Here’s to another year of keeping up
with everyone and everything, and yet
staying true and honest to yourself
despite the pressures and expectations.
Here’s to another year of loving yourself more,
especially during days wherein you feel alone
and people find it difficult to handle,
love and understand you.
Here’s to another year of staying strong
and holding on to whatever faith you have
because you’ve come a long way already.
So I hope you won’t give up and keep your chin up, okay?
