My "brother", Dylan, always says to me that I'm amazing, awesome, the best, and most understanding friend he's ever had. Dylan's my best friend, he said he'll always be there and love me for who I am and not for who I've been.

~Who You Are~

You come around

You notice that my eyes

are locked on the ground

You ask me what's wrong

I don't want to answer

because I'm afraid

of what you'll think of me

You seem to understand

what I want to say

So you takemy hand

and whisper:

"Don't let anyone tell you,

you aren't beautiful.

Don't let anyonetell you,

you're not good enough.

When you're feeling low

look up at the stars

and always remember,

I love you for who you are."

I look up at you

You smile and promise

that you'll be there

to help me through

One night I go outside

and I plan to escape my pain

I look up at the nighttime sky

Your voice softly ran

through my mind:

"Don't let anyone tell you,

you aren't beautiful.

Don't let anyone tell you,

you're not good enough.

When you're feeling low

look up at the stars

and always remember,

I love you for who you are."

When I see

your smiling face

I know that:

I'm beautiful,

I'm always good enough,

and thatI loveyou

for who you are

with all of my heart.
