But…

Dream big
But don’t tell anyone your dreams
Reach for the stars
But don’t take one or pull them down
Learn things and take in knowledge
But don’t talk to others about what you learned
Strive for love
But don’t look for it
Get creative
But stay inside the lines
Feel the rain
But don’t catch a cold
Explore ideas
But play by the rules
Have your freedom
But we are watching every step you take and every turn you make
It’s ok to be emotional
But don’t let anyone see anything other than a smile
Let it all out
But suppress all the dark details
Be yourself
But not that side of yourself
