Before and After

Before and After


I wish you could see your

Before and After

A picture that’s worth a thousand words

For a tired person

For a stressed person

For a person just going through the motions

For that was the person of yesteryear

A person with not much time

A person always in a rush

A person that never breathed

For that was your before

Now is your after

For a person full of energy

For a person well rested

For a person that is living with a purpose

For that is the person of today

A person with time to do as he/she pleases

A person who chooses where he/she wants to be

A person that is not only alive but living

If only you could see what the world sees when it looks into your eyes

If only you could see the new portrait of yourself

For you dear person

Are a breath of fresh air

For you dear person

Are happy

Wearing a contagious smile from ear to ear

Your “after” is definitely amazing

A portrait worth keeping
