It Comes From Within

who am I?

I've never known, no one has ever known.

maybe I'll never know.

how do I identify myself?

I identify myself with the music I listen to, the clothes I wear, the people I hang out with-

and sometimes even the grades I get in school.

but sometimes, it's just not enough.

I've discovered the biggest life hack there is- it comes from within.

who cares what everyone thinks about me?

it's so much easier to identify me with me.

I am strong, independent, powerful and beautiful.

and so are you.

I'm nowhere near those models you see plastered all over America,

yet I couldn't care less.

I am me and I've learned this from looking within myself.

there is nothing more freeing than loving myself for who I am.

maybe I sound conceited, but for some reason I don't care.

I am me and you are you and we're all powerful and courageous and beautiful individuals,

walking this Earth with individual purposes.

so don't fall into the trap that we call "life"-

instead fall into the trap that we call "loving yourself",

because there's no better feeling

than being who you are.
