I'm discovering something I forgot I had,
Something I've found a few times in my past
Forgotten for one reason or another,
A piece of mind found only through time,
Through experience,
A person within me
Who IS me,
Who I've forgotten to pay attention to.
I'm finding my joie de vivre,
Learning to laugh and say, "C'est la vie!"
Learning to smile,
To dance in the street no matter rain or shine.
I'm finding my own Sasha Fierce,
Discovering someone in me
Who IS me,
Discovering how to live with a "que sera sera" mentality,
Hoping it will help to make a better me,
Better by my own definition,
Because I refuse to fit into someone else's box of perfection,
But I refuse to place myself in a self-built box too.
So I'll discover the ways to always keep dreaming,
To always be moving,
To find something to do,
Even if it means I have to break a couple rules.
I'm discovering something I forgot I had,
Someone I've met a few times in the past,
Someone who is in me,
And who IS me.
