To Teenagers, With Love

A reminder to always put yourself first and walk away from toxic those relationships! Hold yourself close - other things can wait.

When I look at couples, I used to decipher that when the girl felt weaker, her guy was there to hold her.

I thought it’s the same and support will always be there for you, little did I know, if you show a little weakness, they leave,

Don’t care a lot, don’t miss a lot,

Oh dear control your emotions,  don’t talk a lot, don’t pray a lot,

Oh dear it’s all an illusion,

Always be there for yourself, and you will find the love you need, don’t expect and don’t inspect because it’s only greed.

The best thing you can do is to be selfish and let them call you selfish, be the only fish in your pond and be the eyesore they dish,

It’s easier said than done but learn to live some more, other things can wait and wait don’t spoil yourself anymore!

A boy dear can come and go what stays is your life, it is and never have been your destiny to just be someone’s wife.

Don’t let those movies fool you, it’s not easy being married, don’t let anyone choose your husband, oh little one, don’t get carried away,

It’s your life and has always been, so be kind to it, don’t just sit there and waste yourself, those relationships are not legit

No one will come to be accountable for you, no matter how much obedience you show,

No matter how good you are, you’ll be labelled a skank anyhow!

When the time is right, you will know, please go and focus on YOU, what matters and what’s left in the end is either crying or a happy YOU!

PS: Stay focussed, stay true, do what you love and just LIVE
