Don\'t Forget

A simple plea for eighteen-year-old me:
Don't forget
Find friends, true friends with high standards like you
Seek those who will help you and carry you through
Don't forget
Be someone you'd be proud to know
Don't just be cool, let your radiance softly show
Don't forget
Keep your standards high, you are beautiful the way you are, even more than you know
Makeup and clothes are pretty, but you don't need them to glow
Don't forget
Never let the harsh shine of the spotlight
Blind you to the soft comfort of the sunlight
Don't forget
You are not alone
So surround yourself with those who care
Don't forget
Dare to do right
Dare to be true
Don't forget
To always be you!
