Do you remember the first time?
The first time you were told you weren't good enough?
The first time you were told you had no talent?
The first time you cried yourself to sleep?
The first time you were told you weren't gonna make it?
The first time someone stabbed you in the back?
The first time you were told that your dreams were stupid? That you were stupid
for dreaming?
That first time you were told to go kill yourself?

I was 15.
How old were you?

I will always remember.
Will you?

That's what keeps me going.

I will never give up.
Don't you dare give up on me either.

I really like this! This is so short yet there is so much meaning behind it. (:
