"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."
-Wuthering Hights

It’s hard to be fair,

In a world that doesn’t care

If you win or if you lose.


It’s hard to be kind

In a world that doesn’t mind 

When other hurt you.


It’s hard to believe 

In a world that can’t conceive

Of giving credit where it’s due.

And it’s hard to give grace

In a world that would be content to replace 

You, in an instant.

It’s hard to stay strong 

In a world that does you wrong.

It’s hard to stay true

In a world that loves to use you 

For its own good. 

But you have to choose to be kind.

You have to choose not to mind,

When they try and break you down.

Just hold your head up high.

You have to choose to love,

You have to choose to rise above

The words the hurl upon you.

Because otherwise, 

What’s the point?

When the world throws you its worst, stand up straight and keep your head up high. Remember, it's okay to cry, just don't let them break you <3
