I love this piece because its a realization altogether of how simple life should be.
Why do we always forget to love ourselves
Just because others can't see through our hells
Why is it the good things in life never last
And things that we want are spells we can't seem to cast
Why do we always wanna go back to the past
When things we have now we wish they would procrast
Well let me tell you my friend how this life works
When it comes to understanding the truths of these quirks
You must realize this curse, that it's making mistakes first
You'll learn from them and discover yourself at your worst
And finally understand that our destiny can't be reversed
Loving yourself you must seek everyone else and look inside and bring out what you hide
You're the only one who can like you for you
So don't rely on someone else to make you their fool
The past is done it won't ever last
Cuz deep in our conscience we allow the future come fast
Therefore we grow to let go of old mass
You know deep in your heart what you truly want is a good start
But to start is to finish, preplenish and keep in good business
Then keep all focus on who you are
Cuz you may lose control and lose that good soul
We dont appreciate the things that we have
We don't even appreciate the world's other half
The water we drink is right in our sink
And we don't realize it's the reason we blink
So we can look at such a beautiful link in how precious it is the way that we think
Mindset to the best if you put your heart to the test
Your brain ain't your cane, quit leanin' in vain
You've gotta learn to maintain this place you sustain
And put yourself in this life like a it's just a game
