You are now 18, standing on the precipice,
trembling before your own greatness.
who say you are too young and delicate
to make anything happen for yourself.
They don’t see the part of you that smolders.
Don’t let their doubting drown out the sound
of your own heartbeat.
Your bravery builds beyond you. You are needed
by all the little girls still living in secret,
writing oceans made of monsters and
throwing like lightening.
You are stronger than the world has ever believed you to be.
The world laid out before you to set on fire.
All you have to do
This is your call to leap.
There will always being those
You are the first drop of a hurricane.
You don’t need to grow up to find greatness.
― Clementine Von Radics
