Insecurity

We could spend our whole lives searching
for some kind of identity.
Trying to figure out
the person in you and me.
At the end of the road,
there was no special message there.
We found out when we finished,
that the answer was always there.

If you want to know who you are,
Stop trying to prove it to everyone.
Know where you’re meant to be,
without forgetting where you’re from.
Keep it simple and keep it right.
You’ve got to feel that peace within.
You can be all that you want to,
just remember the bite of sin.

When you step outside your door,
shake off insecurity.
Stand up straight and smile.
Be who you were made to be.
You were made in God’s image,
not made to follow man’s.
Be better because you want to,
not to make that extra friend.

If you want to know who you are,
Stop trying to prove it to everyone.
Know where you’re meant to be,
without forgetting where you’re from.
Keep it simple and keep it right.
You’ve got to feel that peace within.
You can be all that you want to,
just remember the bite of sin.

Are we searching for an identity? Or for a label from someone else?

    I am not good with poems, but there are people that are good with it, so I present you a poet and his work. I did liked this one more than the others and I hope you’ll realise why.
