Don't Forget to Celebrate

We lose ourselves too easily in jealousy and envy.

Don't forget to celebrate

The achievements of others

We lose ourselves

Too easily

In jealousy and envy

The guise of competition

Paints our minds dark

Positivity hidden in the shadows


Don't forget to celebrate

The achievements of you

Conjured self-doubt and

Deafening voices screaming shit

"You're not good enough"

If only you were able to see

How far you've come

And your little wins every day


Thick, black tar plagues our understanding

Seemingly impossible to shake

An inability to accept

That good cannot compete with good

We are all good

Doing our own good things

In our own good ways

Don't forget to celebrate it.
