Analysis of Believe In Yourself

Believe In Yourself
By Donald James Kirby Von Koehler

You must believe in yourself to rise above mediocrity,
your soul longs to express its unique generosity.
Time has been like the turning pages of a book,
You've learned as you've aged you did what it took.
Now you realize that belief comes from within,
And you can choose to believe in your ability to win.
You must always accept and love yourself flaws and all,
Before you ever can get beyond to destiny's call.
many a hobo were millionaires in their heart,
but they lacked the belief in the talent they held.
Many a millionaire had to work hard at the very start,
when obstacles and adversities came they'd never yeild.
Every time they fell they got back to their feet again,
And pressed on knowing they were closer to the win.
We all have talents yet many have lost hope in dreams,
they pace their rooms as their soul silently screams.
Longing solutions they would find with a better view,
If only they chose a way of living that was new
looking through a different lens to get better focus,
would help them get beyond the wishy washy hocus pocus.
