You walk through the door, expecting a smile .
A warm gesture, a welcome, something worth while .

But instead, to your despair, as you walk through the door …
It’s sad to see nothing, but a cold empty floor .

There are no people, no voices and no faces .
There are no actions, no noises and no paces .

Simply the walls and the floor, set in with dust .
The ceiling cracked, and the corners full of crust .

There is no more warmth here, in this isolated room .
It’s story is told, the history done; locked up in it’s own tomb .

But in the center of the room lies a single chair; placed with care .
And on its back is carved the words… “We’ve been there.”
My past has no affect on my future . 

I . . . . am a human being . A person . An individual . I have a heart , and a soul . What happened before does not what matters . What happened 'then' doesn't matter . What happens *now* . . . . matters . My future has no connection to my past . Every day I am reborn into a better world . I make it a better world . Because *that* is my future , and not my past . 

You . . . . are the essence of innocence . You are perfect . Don't let them break you to your knees . You are strong . You stand up for your convictions . You stand up even when the arrows and slings pierce you . You are a human being . A person . An individual . You have a heart and soul . You make a difference every single day . Because YOU matter . Much more then what you did . But for who you ARE . Life will try to grab you by the hair , and put you under . Don't hold your breath , keep fighting . Because you're better then that . You're worth more then that . What happened before does not matter . What happened 'then' doesn't matter . What happens *now* . . . . matters . But most of all , YOU matter . 
And if you ever lose your grip , and fall . . . . don't be scared to ask for help . 
Because . . . . we've been there .

you do matter, everyone matters . the people who make you feel low are the people who feel low themselves , so don't take their word for it

I am....speechless Leo. I have no idea how to express the full truth of these words you have just uttered.

 

I know for some, they have been though quite a lot in their lives but choose not to do something about it. then there are others like you who stand taller than the world and you can laugh at it, instead of fall within its grasp.

 

*I shake my head* many would fight to have the strength you do.

I don't have much strength , i just have an eye for what's right and what's wrong . i simply voice my opinion and what i think will help . take it or not , it's still there
