How To Believe You Are Amazing

You are amazing.
Incredibly, Amazing.
How do you believe me?
Well that’s a tough subject.
I’m not going to claim I’ve seen your darkness.
I don’t know what it’s like to stand in your shoes.
I’m not going to pretend I know what it feels like to be you.
I’ve never seen your deepest struggles.
We all have them, hidden below.
There lies pain underneath a smile.
Your broken heart’s tombstone,
I know it’s there.
I have one too.
My dead heart lies beneath my lips.
It sadly beats without purpose.
On my worst days, I don’t believe me either.
On most days, I just want to find the button that says escape.
My heart replenishes itself by the second.
I realize this is my life to live and no one else’s.
I know what I need, and I know what I want.
I’ll go find myself first.
You don’t have to believe what I’m saying.
I’m just a broken-hearted poet going on and on and on and on.
Excuse my words if they’re wrong.
We all have to find our own way.
There really is no specific ruling for how.
So you may not believe me with my words here.
Nevertheless, I’ll keep releasing my inhibitions,
By telling you and anybody who will listen,
You are amazing.
Incredibly, Amazing.
