Broken strings & Pretty things

The world, seen through a young girl's eyes.

I’ll sing for your success.

They’ll hate you if you’re pretty; they’ll hate you if you’re not.
They’ll hate you for what you know; they’ll hate you for what you don’t.
They’ll hate you if you take action; they’ll hate you if you hesitate.
They’ll hate you for what you lack; they’ll hate you for what you’ve got.
They’ll hate you if you fight back; they’ll hate you submit.
They’ll hate you for your strengths; they’ll hate you for your weaknesses.
They’ll hate you if you win; they’ll hate you if lose.
They’ll hate you in your joyousness; they’ll hate you in your sufferings.

They’re going to find a reason to not like what you’re doing. They’re going to use your perfections as flaws, and they’re going to find everything they can to turn against you. But darling, in the midst of all this hate and terror and pain, there is love. There is adoration and admiration for everything you do, everything you say and everything you are. Whilst the demons shriek for your suffering, everyone else is singing for your success. We all know just how amazing you are, and we all know that you’re going to achieve the very best, no matter what they try and say.
You may not be able to undo their hate, but you may as well give them something worthy of their hatred.
