To My Younger Self

Written by: Gelacia Villegas

Your walls are closing in
And trapping you inside
You feel there's no way to get out

You try to fight the pain
That's holding you back in chains
The earth feels heavy on your shoulders

People think that you're not from this world
They don't know about what you've been through
They try to hurt you by calling you out
You wish someone could tell you

No matter what the people say
I will always love you
I'll accept you either way
You don't have to hide away
It doesn't matter if you're different
Because it makes you special
You have to learn to love yourself
Before you fall in love with someone else
