Congratulations

Location

Props and patterns,
It's all up to you.
How do you choose to feel today?
You see,
Lately, you haven't been giving yourself enough thanks;
Enough paint to finish your masterpiece.
You haven't smiled in days.
They say,
"You'll fall off at any moment because you refuse to fit the mold."
I say
True beauty is a statement,
Not a look.
For I've seen cover girls who cannot say they are happy.
But you...
...You have what it takes.
You possess that aggressive thump;
That rising beat drum in the palm of your written hands.
So write yourself a thank you.
Tell yourself that you're happy with you.
Give yourself
A congratulations.
For even the skies have darker days.
It's not what you do,
Its how you slay.
