This is my thank you.
I don't know if you'll ever read this,
But I still want to say it.
You opened my eyes to a world full of wonder.
I was a lost kid,
With no hope.
Suffering from my own demons
I needed someone to guide me,
And you came forward and
Took me by the hand and
Introduced me to a world of art.
You pushed me to take steps outside my comfort zone.
You encouraged me to show my art to others.
I entered competitions because you said I'd be good at it.
You gave me feedback and built me up.
And I did everything in my power to try and make you proud.
I wanted to show you that I was worth all the time you spent investing in me.
I wanted to prove to you that I wasn't a mistake
But also to myself.
Throughout you helping me with my art,
You also built my Confidence.
Even if you didn't know it.
I wouldn't be the person I am today.
I don't think I would've made it out alive.
So thank you.
Thank you for seeing the best in me.
Thank you for believing in me.
Thank you for letting me be your breath of fresh air...
