Don't Lose Yourself


Don’t Lose Yourself

Please promise me
You will go carefully
You may feel sad
But you have to believe it won’t be bad.

You will have to look
Back on the people you left
To remember the reason
For those actions you took.

Try to stay together
Both physically
And emotionally.
Remember those you love,
And have faith in God above.

Keep your values,
And what you believe in.
To lose them
Would be a sin.

Stay true to yourself
Because your experiences
Will try to change you
Everything will seem new.

You will see a lot of pain,
But just know it is for a better gain.
Don’t become a victim
Of a crazy whim.

It will be tough
You may think your best
Is not enough.

Just know there will be people here
When you come home.
They will help ease
Your fear.

At times you may feel weak,
But always know you have a voice
with which you can speak.
When you come back,
Try to forget all the things that happened
During an attack.
Cling to the memories from the farther past.
Those are the ones
that should be built to last.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
