To my 14 year old self

You may feel down, but that will soon leave, your happiness is just a few months away. In the end you will have your say but just now it feels like a heave.
Stop comparing yourself to the people around you. Soon you’ll see that they’re just as blue. Be yourself always and forget your mistakes. Things will change and you will no longer ache.
Hearts heal faster than they break. Don’t let negative feelings bake. Positivity will bring great things and in a short while you will dine with the kings.
This time hold on to your prince, don’t let those feelings rinse. Don’t let me scare you, I won’t blame you for leading the same path as I. We end up happy with a million ideas to pursue.
If only you knew.
