Sitting here under this tree,
Staring up into the sky,
Lord I often wonder,
Why me, why alone, why?
Do I not possess
qualities that stand up against the rest?
Do I lack something that holds me back from being with someone else?
I stare at my complexion,
I see a beautiful creature,
But why do I feel lonely and deserted,
An island in the middle, no one able to reach it.
Then I begin to look harder, deeper and less superficial,
The reflection begins to shake, my heart begins to quiver.
I am more than the naked eye can see,
I am worth more than I allow myself to be,
I can do more than many, cause I’m unique,
I can touch others in a way they have never been reached
I can live life happy for I know I will never be lonely,
Because I’ve found the joy within me!
