I wanna know your beginning

so I can see how far you’ve come

I wanna know your struggles

so I can appreciate your triumphs

Show me what’s real and difficult and true

Don’t hide behind the facade

That’s all to eager

To hide the real you

I find beauty in the mountains

You’ve had to overcome

I find love in the messes

That you try to run from

I learn more from the broken pieces

than from the picture perfect lie

I find more joy in all the cracks

The ones you try to hide

Bravery is found in being real

Love is found in being vulnerable

Don’t be who you think you should

Be who you know you are.
