Do you want the good news? Or the bad?
The good news is we’re happy!
The bad’s that we’re still barking mad!
Round bout now you are leaving
that strange emo phase
when black nails, ribbons. lace
and a moody face were all the craze!
Now I am still convinced that
all that you’re about to witness
all the heart break, all the mistakes,
all those failed attempts at fitness,
Every tear, and shout and giggle,
has gone towards creating me,
and I wouldn’t change a single second,
or your happiness or misery
but with all that said I think there are
some things you ought to know
just to make your journey smoother,
a bit less bumpy on the go,
1! Don’t compare yourself
To every girl you’ve met
Their bigger boobs, their longer legs
their better make up, coz I will bet
that every girl that we ever met
compared themselves to us
our curvy waist, our curly hair
when all we though was “What’s The Fuss?”
You’re not them and they’re not you
and holy crap that’s nice
so stop comparing, start self caring
coz all you are will more than suffice
2 Hold your horses!
take things slower, think it through,
you’re so good at jumping in the deep
without a freaking clue
You fall in love with best case scenarios
whilst ignoring all the worst
so when the worst comes rollin’ round
your bubble’s quickly burst.
Fight that urge to race ahead
Be the tortoise, not the hare,
You’ll see the end before it’s here,
not fall straight over it when you’re there!
3 Take time to date yourself,
don’t let guys state your worth,
coz half the guys you end up being with
just didn’t deserve
everything you had to offer,
coz you didn’t learnt to love yourself
before you asked a boy to love you,
which got you left up on a shelf.
Figure out exactly who you are,
and then be daring,
but you’ve got to be more careful
when it’s your heart that you are sharing.
Aside from that, I don’t think
I’d change another thing,
Even that stupid decision you make
that 2012 will bring…
But remember, there will be times,
when it feels like all is lost,
and there’s no way out from all that doubt
and every bridge has been crossed
But if you call it quits you’ll never
see where we end up,
and I gotta say, it’s pretty freaking cool
so don’t give up.
Life has got this funny way
of being really bad
and then just like that the light comes out
and you will feel so glad
that you held on that bit longer
So you can lay out in the sun
and I hope that I can make you proud,
Love from Me at Twenty-one
