To the kid holding his head down

To the kid holding his head 
down, keep it up! If things are 
hard let it go. The people that 
aren't your friends now, were 
never meant to be. Don't 
change to fit in. Don't even 
change to get in. Change to 
better yourself and to bring 
light to humanity. Light that we 
need to see. Darkness is what 
weakens us. We can never 
move forward if we remain in 
the past. The past is irrelevant 
unless we manifest it and make 
it part of the present future. So 
hold your head up and strive. 
Not strive to remain, but strive 
to be alive!
