Letter to A Friend – Dear Friend

I wish I can take away all your pain.

Beat up the boys that has ever made you cry.

Protect you from their lies.

I wish you listened more to me when I say he’s not for you, you can do better.

I wish they had eyes so they can see how amazing you are.

I wish they can see what I see in you.

This smart, beautiful person.

But you see, they are blind.

And I wish you believe me when I say “nothing is wrong with you and it’s not your fault”

But because he’s not the first you blame yourself and look for a fault that is not there.

Dear friend, if these boys can’t give you the love you deserve,they shouldn’t be in your life.

So please wipe your tears and let them go.

  1. This is a lovely one, Funke. Many a time people try to feed us negative and prey on insecurity. All we need to do is embrace every part of us (flaws inclusive) and believe that we Are everything and more!
