Take care

Take care

A Poem by J Shinoda
"

I wrote this poem in dedication to the people who are struggling against depression and suicide. And I dedicate this to myself, who is slowly suffering on the same stages.

"
Be friends with yourself.
For when you are in trouble, the only
friend you have is you.

Take care of your teeth.
You will have to nibble a bag of chips or a
delicious meal after a terrible break-up.

Take care of your eyes.
After shedding a bucket of tears
You will need them to see the rainbow
after the thunderstorms.

Take care of your hair.
It is one of the best features above your beautiful face.

Take care of your hands.
They are the foundation of most of your talents.

Take care of your ears.
The best words you will hear will be coming from
the people who value your worth.

Take care of your legs.
Not everyone is able to use them to finish their journeys.

Take care of your body.
It is the balance of your physical capacities.

Take care of your mind.
Your thoughts control the destiny of your future.

And lastly,

Control your heart.
For it is the core of your actions, thoughts, and feelings

And it is your tool to love and be loved again.
