You accept what you can’t control,
But what if that’s not true?
What if the control depends
On recognizing the power inside you?

You turn perception
On its ear.
What once seemed bad
Becomes something you no longer fear.

It’s not always that easy,
I won’t lie.
It takes practice and faith
To overcome, to see that you must try.

Some of us are told
We aren’t worthy, that we don’t have value.
But I know there’s a seed growing inside,
Waiting to reveal what’s great about you.
