Be Brave Little Sunflower

Be Brave Little Sunflower

Be brave little sunflower.

Today is your day,

The light it shines brightly,

And the ocean waves without fear.

Do not be afraid,

For you are doing your best.

The world, yes it’s hard,

But you won’t give it a rest —

Until you are smiling,

Eyes to the sun,

Heart in the clouds,

Arms to the sky.

Nothing ever makes sense;

You wonder if it ever will.

Maybe one day,

But not right now.

Right now you hold on,

Take deep breaths,

Walk forward,

Dance along the street,

Cry hard,

Twirl around the corner,

Kick the air,

Scream at the sky ,

Breathe in the positivity

And possibilities of your life.

You have done so much,

You have stepped so far,

You have been so brave.

You have done what you never thought you would do.

You are being brave, little sunflower

And I am proud of you.
