Quick Peptalk;

You wake up in the morning…
Pick up all the pieces that make you up.
Thinking to yourself, please let today be a better day… Don’t give up.
Your mind instantly racing.
Automatically pacing.
Back & forth…
Grabbing  your clothes, your keys, your purse;
but leaving one thing behind…Your worth.
Today, do yourself a favor and think of you first.
Don’ let society determine your worth.
Ensure you love yourself & gain your own sense of bliss.
Pick yourself up & climb out of the abyss.
