What Lies Within

I will not go back to that place of desolation
Where for many months I lived in isolation
Far from anything 'n' anyone who could be my oasis
Away from love

I will not return to feelings of inadequacy 'n' failure
To way back where I layed the blame on myself
Believed I had too many shortcomings 'n' lofty expectations
Unattainable by earthly man

Instead...

I will stand firmly rooted in my accomplishments, beliefs 'n' ideals, 'n' love
Love for others, but most of all love for myself
Belief in perseverance 'n' hard work 'n' morals
As the realization that my own happiness

Lies within ME
