A Look Inside

As I focus within
I see myself
not just a man
flesh and bone
but as a human
flawed, tragic
beautiful, amazing
Self evaluation takes over
Did I do enough
Did I do too much
Will I ever be satisfied
But the questions are without answers
And the answers provide little comfort
The truth is it all lies within
In my heart, in my soul
In my mind, in my spirit
The answers can be found
in acheivement
The smiling faces of others
The smiling faces of myself
So what can I do, what can I say
Nothing? Everything?
Maybe it doesn’t matter
Maybe it takes being happy
Happy enough to know
Everything will be ok
Everything will work out
If I am just happy
Not blissful ignorance
But pride, esteem, ego and love
Self love, the love no one else can give me
the kind that makes a person truely happy
Only then can I take my weakness
My love and consern for others
and turn it into my greatest strength
A love for myself
