Devoirs

In a world full of categories,
may you remain undefined
While others seek out a place to belong,
may you build alone
You are only as wise as your last choice
and ignorant as your next decision
When you have only yourself to blame,
may you remember you’re not perfect
Do not abandon those weaker parts of you when they have been trampled
When the easiest route would be to give up, may your courage pull you on
If you begin to think that nothing matters,
may your actions remind you that you do
When the only way to forget the hurt is to stop feeling,
may you understand the importance of loss
For if this life has conditioned you to become impenetrable,
may it also remind you that you are in control
You are your own
