"So you want a heart? You don't know how lucky you are not to have one. Hearts will never be practical until they are made unbreakable"

I am beautiful
There is life in me
A light that shines
Through the darkness
I accept the light
As a good friend
A lover
A cool breeze
I feel it through me
Unsettling my hair
Tickling my nose
My entire body shines
Purity remains whole
There is darkness in me
But the light is stronger
It holds me up
When I am down
The life in me never
It makes me who I am
The light, life, is pure
It makes me whole
Death. Fear. Limitations.
These things can control me
But life overpowers them
I can make them leave me
Like the light can
I am the light
The light is everywhere
I am beautiful
Like the light in me.

This amazing video by Levi made me want to write a poem. I was having a tough time, doubting myself, until I found this commercial. I must give credit to "The Laughing Heart" by Charles Bukowski, which is the poem read in the video. It inspired me to write a poem for myself that I will read whenever I feel sad or lonely.
