until you lose your place and others write it for you.

and then learn to measure them with self-judgement.

until you learn that lying is easier to believe.
You will learn to feel free with your emotions
until you learn to hide them.

You will also learn to unlearn the learning.
That you can find your humanity again
and see the equality in yourself.
That you can learn to not hide from yourself
but to learn to know yourself well.
That you can write your own story
of strength and courage and honor.
That you can learn to make mistakes
and learn the lessons they bring.

and learn to start with you.
That you can learn to be kinder to yourself
and be gentle with your words you use.
That you will learn to be gentle with your battles
and to surrender to the higher you.
That you will learn to speak truth to yourself
and learn the difference between the two.
