Feelin' Down? Read This!

To become entangled in others' perception of you

Is to shatter the mirror upon seeing your reflection

They do not walk in your shoes or understand your intentions

For others to judge your life speaks volumes regarding their own

 

Do not concern yourself with those who thrive 

From defining stories that they did not write

To find meaning and peace is to hear yourself and those you love

Input that is blind to your best concern

Will result only in a false narrative

 

Exude confidence in the demeaning eyes of belittlement

Do not cross the fine line between self-love and selfishness 

Accept your lows with the same grace as your highs

Love and allow yourself to be

For it is then that you will filter out the negative

And feel the freshness that life entails
