What does it mean to be true?

truth

What you see is what you get

At least that is the how

The old saying goes

But who is to say

Who is to see

But you….

Your inner you…

Outside pressures

May build

What remains

Is YOU

Soul essence

It is that which

Deserves

The integrity

Of being true…

‘To thine own self

Be true’

Echoing again

In my own

Heart caverns.

The Power Inside of Me

Seek and you shall find what you may already have
Sometimes it’s your own shadow standing in your path
I have spent my life with a vision of myself,
But I may have been somebody, somebody else.
I feel a change in the tide
As I hold my heart open wide.

CHORUS:
Never,
Knew what I could be
I never felt the power inside of me
Now I stand in all the wonder
That the mirror couldn’t see.
I have the power inside of me, yeah.
I have the power inside of me.

Every time I held a rose, I only felt the thorns.
I feel like todays the day I finally was born.
Now that I see me through these eyes,
I can do more than fantasize.
