Life can be beautiful, just take a look
Its not always as clear as reading a book
Look inside yourself and unpick the seams
Then sew them together with your hopes and dreams
Look inside yourself, what do you see
Cloudy recognition and broken dreams
Look inside yourself, what do you hear
The voice of self loathing and so much fear.
Look inside yourself, what do you feel
Angry & hurt, wounds that wont heal
Look inside yourself, its time to change
unravel your past and rearrange
your thinking into something new that’s positive and right for you.
Look inside yourself, stop overthinking, procrastinating and slowly sinking
Into yourself, replaying the scene
of who, what, where and what could have been
Look inside yourself for something new, a glimmer, a spark thats peeping through
be brave and grasp it…let it grow, its you…you’ve been hiding – dont you know.
Look inside yourself , no longer hide, its time to let happiness and confidence reside
in the place that pain once always grew
you’re stronger now, you’re beautifully you.
Look inside yourself and try to find
the hurt that was always there on your mind
you’re sure its there but cant quite see,
through the glorious shine of inner peace.
Look inside yourself now what do you see
Clarity, presence and reality not dreams
Look inside yourself, now what do you hear
the voice of compassion, welcoming and clear
Life can be beautiful so just believe
It’s yours alone, not what others perceive
Life can be beautiful, hopeful and bright
Be kind to yourself, you’re doing alright
