Embrace

Complexion and perception are unusual characteristics
Thoughts that drive the emotions of differing logistics
No matter how hard you may try you feel inept inside
Struggling with how you view the image you portray on the outside

Some of us don’t cut ourselves any slack
Expecting perfection when nobody else even has that
Utilizing every chance to enhance certain aspects
Rather than giving ourselves an ounce of self respect

Fighting with our own views
In such ways that others have no clue
None of this should come as news
Since we’ve all suffered a pinch of the blues

For some reason many times compliments fall to the wayside
Due to the sheer amount of disbelief someone holds in tough times
We’re all in some way shape or form tied together with experiences
Since everyone has encountered judgments that were serious

What we see in the mirror is made up of more than just that image
There are far greater explanations and sensations that produce the vision
Everyone reacts differently to what it is they see
Considering we all think and operate uniquely

How it is we react and contemplate
Will determine what kind of life we create
Each moment introduces a new opportunity
With the future waiting patiently

What will we do differently
Does change even need to happen, not necessarily
The context with which you view is up to you
Just don’t hesitate to be something great by missing the lessons of what you’ve gone through

Mirror

Are you true to yourself
Or do you change when peer pressure ensues
Is it your beliefs that define oneself
Or do your actions speak differently than you

Is the fence getting straddled when you get asked questions
Or do your answers give a clearly explained position
Are you standing firm upon what it is that you believe
Or are you allowing others to influence your dream

Hesitation is never a friend
Procrastination never gets you ahead
Execution allows you to go forward
Achievement is that satisfaction you move toward

Is fear something that you let prevent
Or are you one that can overcome those elements
Are you going to remain silent if challenged
Or will you show devotion and get competitive

When that edge approaches will you stop
Or will you let faith carry you over the drop
Will there be a celebration of what you did in the end
Or do you plan not to share the joys with other friends

Resistance is never a friend
Denial never gets you ahead
Sacrifice allows you to go forward
Victory is that satisfaction you move toward
