Words From A Poet: Change Your Perception To Have Peace In Your Possession
You weren’t in control of the cards you were dealt but you are in control of how you play them.
You weren’t in control of the cards you were dealt but you are in control of how you play them. Imagine the life that you want for yourself and go after it.

You want all this sympathy
You want all this pity
You want the world to respect you
But you aren’t even willing
To stand up & realize
It’s no ones fault but your own
No it may not be your fault that you have these issues
But it’s your fault that you refuse to acknowledge the change of action
That is required in order to terminate this self loathing you’ve allowed to transpire
See I’m not like the rest of them
Who pat your back
& rub your head
Then tell you everything’s going to be fine
Even though you’re still stuck
Because I refuse to lie
That’s just not fair to you
Your perception is stuck in negativity
& you let yourself get caught up in it way too easily
You need to take responsibility
For your own peace & relativity
You need to make some moves, even some tiny ones if you choose…because from tiny seeds, grow the mightiest trees
Now listen to me…you want to fix this depression?
Then start changing your perception
& if happiness is what you desire
Stop feeling sorry for yourself & do what’s required
& then watch all of a sudden
Peace & happiness finally end up in your possession
One of my favorite quotes is from the film, “Perks of Being a Wallflower.” It goes, “We accept the love we think we deserve.” And this is so true. Whether it be the love we accept from ourselves, or another, we only demand and accept (or in some cases put up with) what we believe we’re worthy of. So, with that being said, believe that you’re worthy of all of the good things and good people that come to you. Don’t fear them, accept them and their love and love yourself the same. Allow it to bring you true happiness.
