BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
HOW DO YOU EXPECT SOMEONE ELSE
TO BELIEVE IN YOU?

LOOK INSIDE YOURSELF
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT
NEVER LET YOURS OR OTHERS INSECURITIES
FILL YOUR MIND WITH DOUBT
CAUSING YOU TO CONSTANTLY SIT
ON THE BENCH OF INDECISION
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
RESPECT YOUR OWN OPINION

IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
HOW DO YOU EXPECT SOMEONE ELSE
TO BELIEVE IN YOU?

DON'T GET LOST IN THE CROWD
BECAUSE YOU ARE AFRAID TO STAND OUT
STAND TALL, BE PROUD 
OF WHO YOU ARE
DON'T BE SILENCED BY YOU FEARS
LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD
PUT CONVICTION IN EVERY WORD

NO ONE IN THIS WORLD 
HAS THE POWER TO MAKE YOU
SO DON'T GIVE THEM THE POWER
TO BREAK YOU
THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO JUDGE YOU
'CAUSE GOD IS THE ONLY ONE ABOVE YOU
SO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
DON'T WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE
TO BELIEVE IN YOU.
