You have done enough today.
You have conquered worlds and erupted in flames at your diligence.
You have cried rivers and sewn hearts until your fingers prickled with their memories.
You lit the path to the stage, where your neighbor and your rival can be themselves.
You painted canvases of little flowers blooming out of your heart.
You did everything right,
You smiled when you had to,
You pretended to understand when you didn’t,
You nodded in agreement and sighed in defeat.
I applaud your intrepidity,
Except that, you really were afraid.
You have done enough today,
Tomorrow is a better day.
