Do not allow him/her/them

To define you.

You are uniquely you

You will be bested by no one.

Create the collage

Of your existence

Unbridled by the thoughts and wishes

Of others.

Leave the mark

Upon the world

You chose,

Not the mark chosen for you

By some taskmaster from your past.

Your potential for greatness

Is as vast and awe inspiring

As the Northern Lights.

Reach and grasp your own potential.

If handed to you,

The meaning of your success

Becomes inconsequential-

Tainted by someone’s joy

Other than your own.
