You don’t have to be today,
Whoever you thought you were yesterday.
The painting you started last night,
Doesn’t have to end how you thought it might,
It can go in any direction you desire,
You are new today, you are new every hour.
Weak, scared, tough or rough,
Someone who couldn’t do enough.
Whoever you have been until now,
You were that only until now,
Now is a new moment and in this moment so are you,
Choose the colors you like and paint yourself anew.
You can make yourself from scratch
Or fix yourself with a little patch.
Change always happens in one decisive moment,
And this could be that moment.
The painting so far is but a background now,
If you were someone you didn’t like, Change. You know how.
