Believe In Yourself

If only for today... Would you believe? Not in a deity Not in someone else Not in some grand idea But in yourself We put faith in what is around us But little of it finds a home Within the depths of our soul But there is one reality Nothing is realer than you Nobody ever knows you like you Your deepest thoughts Your greatest fears What you see in the mirror All uniquely personal Language is imperfect And something is lost when spoken Be good to yourself Be honest with yourself Be the one you see in the mirror Painted beautifully With all your hopes and dreams And no You won't be some grand idea You won't be someone else You won't be some deity For one day... Would you believe... In yourself?

"Language is imperfect And something is lost when spoken"! Indeed, there are things that transcends language! What we believe in.. what we feel could not always be rendered! A deep write! Congratulations, Christopher on your POTD! My deepest regards.
