It Is Only You



In a world filled up with darkness
Seeing none to be seen in vicinity
The soul gets filled with emptiness
Drowning in a whirlpool of tears.
Helpless and down by own fears
Losing the way to move up in life
Was Yelling and pleading for help.

When a voice came up to my ears
I cannot help, since you are the help
None is holding you back except you
The strength you need is within you
Look into your own eyes and just see
When I saw a person helping others
Not wasting time on useless matters.

The voice continued in a soft note
Use the precious gifts hidden in you
Those good ones you never knew
Learn From others and help yourself
Going out to help the world around you
Since all do feel the same as you do
So lift up your talents which will lift you.

The voice went on with another say
Since you live as if you have jean
Fitted in your eyes to lose your sight
When many alternatives are there
You are still living blaming yourselves
When the answers for your problems
Lies deep within you and it is only You.
