def(I)ne

Location

 

Many dream of popularity, riches, and wealth,

but what they overlook is the guidance to the right of your shelf.

Act like this, act like that, and be who you see,

but life isn't all about being who you perceive. 

Many who follow this train of thought,

are the ones who become disappointed with the life they've got.

But you see, you can evade all the pain and regretful sorrow,

with this one piece of advice I'll let you borrow.

Simply look for your guidance in a place you'll least expect,

and its a place you always consciously neglect.

Walk up to the mirror,

to the right of your shelf,

and from now on daily imitate who you see...

Yourself.
