5 steps to build a human being

Step 1:    Believe you can.
And when they tell you that you must cry, do not.
When they tell you what to eat, do not.
When they tell you it’s time to sleep, do not.
When they tell you what to say; SCREAM.

Step 2:    Know you can.
And listen to what they say, because you can.
When they tell you to run, you can.
When they teach you to read, you can.
When they call you out to fight; STOP.

Step 3:    Think you can.
And obey them when they pay you for it, because you should.
When they tell you to be quiet, you should.
When they tell you that you need to fix yourself, you should.
When they ask you to leave them alone; FIGHT.

Step 4:    Maybe you still can.
And when you feel like there’s no happiness, try.
When they tell you that you have responsibilities you’re running from, try.
When they tell you to stay up all night for others, try.
When they make you suppress all your urges; CRY.

Step5:    You can.
And when you’re greeted by the end of days, smile.
When they tell you you’re sick and you need treatment, smile.
When they ask you to swallow your pills, smile.
When they ask you to wake up one last time; DIE.
