Featured Writer – Rachel Malcom



I will not take life for granted, I won’t live in the past
I will live everyday to the fullest, as if it were my last

I will not be afraid to fall in love, I’ll learn to let go
I will overcome fear, and not let my pain show

I will not waste my talents or dreams
I will learn contentment, and exactly what it means

I will not let my most memorable moments fade
I will hold onto them, and make sure more are made

I will not allow toxic people to make me cry
I will follow my morals, and keep my standards high

I will not lose faith at any cost
I will embrace hope, when all seems lost

I will not be ashamed of the person I am, I will love me inside and out
I will let my true colors show, even when I’m in doubt

  7. I am running this and anyone can be featured. They just have to be able to be old enough to submit the work themself. 😉
