All you need is a reason to hope,
To be grateful for the calm after the storm.
All you need is a reason to despair,
To believe you don’t deserve happiness.
All you need is a reason to trust,
To see the good in others,
To know that you are welcomed, valued,
To see the difference you make in the world.
All you need is a reason to be angry,
To think everyone is against you,
To feel that you’d be better off dead,
To accept defeat and capitulate to evil within.
All it takes is a choice,
A change in direction,
To make any reason actionable.
It is up to you to decide which path to follow.
