Be Brave child,
Hold on hang on
Those big monsters
Are not that strong

Don’t run or hide,
Don’t fear to be
All this I will say
In a Letter to Me

Don’t back down
Put up a fight
Raise your voice
When you know that’s right

They’d all listen
Eventually they’d see
All this I will say
In a Letter to me

Do what you want
Listen to your heart
When you know not what to do
Its the best place to start

When you know your dreams
Hold on firmly
All this I will say
In a letter to me

Don’t try to be her
Don’t try to be new
You are unique
There is only one you

Know who you are
Announce it proudly
All This I will say
In a Letter to me
