Stamp of Approval

It’s that smile,

Pat on the back,

Cheering from the sidelines with their large signs 

That keeps you going

The energizer bunny strong you are if you let them tell it

High-fives and “good jobs” 

A+’s and compliments

Likes and long fb comments

They make you blush,

Make your heart flutter,

Decieve you into believing that void and self-doubt you feel you can fill with just them

It’s that stamp of approval you get for answering the question correct

That slight hesitation you experience but they catch

You need to feel like they like you

And that whatever you decide to do they think is right too

You rely on them for pick me ups and warm heart revival 

But what you don’t understand is that you need none of this for your survival

You are beautifully and wonderfully made

In his image

You are great and it’s independent 

Of what people think

Or what they tell you

Everybody got an opinion, they’ll pull you up down left and right too

Spending so much time trying to please people you’ll always lose you

Most importantly you’ll distort the point of why God made you You

Unique and cool 

in your own way

Spreading your own light each and every day

Embrace who you are no matter what they say

Do what’s in your heart and try not to stray

From the person he called you to be 

He’ll always make a way.

Because really it’s His stamp that is the only one that should count a thing
