Forgive me, my dear heart,
I had always ripped you apart.
I never listened to your sound advice.
I just wanted to be nice,
To others at the cost of my self-esteem.
In the process, I killed my dream.
I wanted to fly high like a bird,
But left my inner voice unheard.
I realized my mistake, but it was late.
I had already resigned to my fate.
Until someone gave me a rap on my head,
To open my eyes, and wake up from the bed.
Learn to love yourself for your own sake.
Life will then be a piece of cake.
Follow your heart and do not fret.
Over your failures as life is not over yet.
