Sometimes it is difficult accepting who you are,
Because you are scared and not so confident in yourself.
I used to live that way;
In fear of rejection,
Of not finding my true love,
In fear of getting hurt
And I could go on and on and on.
But, to what end?
My inability to forgive and my stubbornness let go of the past
held me captive to my mind.
It blinded me with rage and fed me with revenge for the things I had lost
and I have lost…
Lost so many things I can’t get back.
but with time, I grew to realize, this is not the burden of a Nubian queen,
one created in perfection as God showed off His artistic tendencies.
No, I am no slave of pain
So I look deep down inside and began to fall in love with me.
My imperfections and fears I embrace
Living each day as if its were my last.
In His image and likeness He created and molded me.
Oh… What joy and peace I have found.
Deep within, Deep within me.
Please understand that when we hurt each other we hurt ourselves
and when we hurt ourselves we hurt each other.
Yes, times are tough and the world is insane,
But it is for this the balance is kept.
Be confident to be who you are…
This life is all I got,all the time I have to be.
I guess all I needed was to love myself
To be confident in me
