Life can be so unraveling at times
The stresses of life are more than enough
But add to that the desire to have more
And it can make each day seem so tough.
We are always our own worst critic
That is what I have always said
When someone pays a compliment
Sometimes it makes us wonder instead.
What do they see that I don’t feel
What have they felt with their eyes
Is it real and genuine or maybe a trick
Maybe even something else in disguise.
But then you find a special person to know
There isn’t any deception in thought
You finally believe and know without doubt
There is a place for your heart to be caught.
