Self

With all the media and text you consume
The final decision of what to believe is up to you
The wisdom and intellect that gets relayed
Ultimately depends on your heart and mind’s decided pathway

Sometimes facts are presented, but plenty is unexplained
Lots of questions are formulated for us to figure out each day
Behind the layers of fear, is your conscience clear
Is this something you can accept, will you maintain self respect

Words and letters swirling like a tornado
Engulfing our thoughts sending chills down our torso
What will determine your next choice
Will you speak up and maintain your own voice

Don’t let the abundance of pressure sink you into depression
Contemplating decision after decision just leaves you left wishin’
The storm shouldn’t determine the outcome
Your presence is needed to be present in every situation

Show yourself that you care and become aware
Wake up to life and don’t imprison yourself in despair

Be aware

Don’t let others decide who you are
You aren’t deserving of their pressure
Stay true to you in all you do
Otherwise you may be questioning all you once knew

Don’t take hold to rigorous pain
An addiction to anything can leave you insane
The need you feel is nothing but illusion
You’re better off coming to a different conclusion

Don’t push away those who care
Unless you’re willing to accept the dare
Being left alone in silence you’ll never win
And it’s hard to rekindle trust again

Don’t wonder too far off of the path
Especially if you want a comfortable life to last
The wrath that waits to ambush someone who is lost
Isn’t worth the distraction nor the cost
