Life Really Is Worth Living


Being your own worse enemy
will never feed the soul, all you'll
do is hide away in a place where
pity only grows...

Bring yourself down, your worth
never seems to count, you made
your bed, now you sleep in
darkness made by you alone..

You have always counted, God
made you filled with love, only
you don't take the time to see
your own true worth...

It is so easy to run another down
when it makes you happy to
see a frown, it seems to me you
need to learn the value of life
it's richness before your eyes...

Before one can walk they have
to crawl, to see there worth will
bring the light from deep within
the soul..

It does not hurt another as it
does to face the truth, life is
a struggle, one has to try to make
it work, it will not do it by itself..

So don't bring those around you down,
you'll only be hurting yourself in the
end, with doubt you caused yourself,
so sad to see you don't give a hell
to know what you are doing to yourself..

You always say you can't be bothered
what a way to kiss life's treasure, never
carrying about no one but yourself, your
the one who hates yourself, so don't
go and steal another's smile..

(If one will not bother to work on themselves,
they will drown in there own self pity...One
must be positive to bring out the light)
