My Own Universe

I look in the mirror and I see the entire universe.

Staring straight into my own eyes, I swear my heart could burst.

No one ever tells you how to love yourself.

How to build yourself up on the inside and live with health.

How to take yourself by the hand and never let go.

My entire life, I’ve seen myself grow.

I’ve seen blood and tears and laughter with fear.

Yet I stand in the mirror.

And I see the entire universe and the steerer.

I remind myself that I am beautiful and that I am worth it.

A relationship with yourself is the most important thing to fit.

Because in the end, it's just you in that bottomless pit.
