Dear Sophie

Don’t worry about …

the hand me downs worn until too tight

or the education they never believed you deserved

Don’t worry about …

the acknowledgement of any of your achievements you never received

or the way you were told to stay in your room until a month had passed

you’re free now — you’re the only one holding yourself back

You are free now …

to do as you please

to live your dream

to fly above the clouds

to shine your light so bright

to believe in the person you are and always were meant to be

trust God who knows all and remember to quit holding on so tightly.
