a way

Feeling all but lost

Based on the need to belong

Search for connection

Validate your heart

Seek acceptance from others

Yet that doesn’t work

Because opinions

Change direction with the wind

You must be grounded

Believe in yourself

No matter what others say

Your knowledge is law

Let observations

Help determine your focus

Don’t buy into fear

own your ship

You’ve got to come first

When another puts you last

You must value, you

It’s more important

How you feel about the goal

Then when you’ll get there

happy talk

What you tell yourself

You want it to be better

You’re letting it go

What you tell yourself

I feel it’s getting better

I believe I’m free

What you tell yourself

My life keeps getting better

Life responds in kind

We give words power

The allure of a promise

Brings hope to a heart
