Inside AND Out!


To accomplish 'something' to have done,
With a witnessing to see it revealed...
To overcome setbacks and feelings of doubt,
Is 'success' one can express to feel...
Inside AND out!

Many have known themselves to be,
Their own worse enemy fighting insecurities.
To become judge and jury of their own denials.
As they put others on trial to defend their kept ways...
With a making of excuses in a comfort that stays.

Is it easy to find that spark found to ignite?
No!
Is it easy to awaken to become excited about life?
No!
Should one remain feeling defeated with no hope in sight?
No!
But one should not accept fears to keep protected.
Or believe they can not be eliminated to reject.

To accomplish 'something' to have done,
With a witnessing to see it revealed...
To overcome setbacks and feelings of doubt,
Is 'success' one can express to feel...
Inside AND out!
IF...
The choice one decides to make,
Is to face all obstacles!
And with determination they WILL be removed!

That choice to accomplish 'something' to have done,
With a choosing to do...
Is 'success',
One can express to feel and not to impress...
Inside AND out!
