there’s a light inside of you. don’t ever let someone take that away from you. if they tell you that you can’t, show them you can. if they make fun of you, keep having fun somewhere else. if they make you feel down, just keep looking up. if they tell you you’re not a real artist, cover this world in your paint. there will always be people in this life who seek only darkness, who don’t want anyone to be seen… or to be felt, except for themselves. show them the light inside you. be a beacon of what is right. be the light that guides others to shine theirs. inspire vision in this world, and always be unapologetically… you.
