The Type (poem) 

If you are the type of person born with fire in your eyes

You can let it drive you.

Your sparks can ignite a fallen world

Show them what makes you different

Some may have never seen it before.

If you are the type of person who was born with flaws

You can let them define you.

Do not mistake flaws for mistakes or worthlessness

The disease can control you, and you can mourn forever over what you wished you were

When accepting the very nature, body, and soul inside of you may be the answer.

If you are the type of person with a desire to be wanted

You can let them want you.

They may want things of you that you simply aren’t

Try to tell you that you belong somewhere you don’t

Do not waste your time wondering if you are the type of person that belongs here

Wondering if you are worth it or good enough for this world

Instead go after your dreams no matter how impossible they are

Reach for the moon, for the stars

Work your heart out in an effort towards your aspirations

Keep pressing on, and on, and on.

But if you are the type of person that gets discouraged sometimes

Life can become an absolute mess

It may raze your dreams and exacerbate your weaknesses

Change the key of your melody to another tune

And sometimes you’ll learn to sing along to this tune

With disappointments, failures, burdens in your shoes

However, if you are the type of person burned out from life

Trying to follow stars in the middle of the night

You are not alone.

You are not broken.

You are looking for confidence and a place to call home

So let the walls of doubt crumble down

let yourself build your new empire

Because you were the type of person with fire in your eyes

You can create light in anything.

If you are the type of person that is human

I have news for you

No matter what circumstances you’re in

You still have the right to choose.
