Favorite Quote:
People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But they will never forget how you made them feel. - Maya Angelou


I stare into this piece of glass,
Introspection at its best,
Hoping this feeling will just pass,
Soon to give my soul a rest.

But thoughts just go on and on,
Imperfections left and right.
What would happen if it all was gone?
Down that drain without a fight.

The person in the glass says I would be lonely
All you would have is me.
But I say there is more left if I be willing,
More than meets the eye you see.

A fire coming from my heart,
Stronger than any flaw.
Burning away that person by the part
Who says I’m just all wrong.

And so I take that glass,
I throw it all away.
At last, at last
My soul no more dismayed.

This is just about someone who only sees the bad things in themselves but soon overcomes it and feels better about who they are.
