Look at something long enough

And you will, without a doubt

Find something wrong with it.


Now ask yourself if there is indeed a blemish,

Or if you are perhaps creating one,

Because you believe nothing in the world

Holds true beauty, does that make it true?

Take time to challenge your assumptions

For it is through our thoughts

That the mind tends to give us what we want.


We resist unforeseen bliss; protective of our hearts

Caution, like everything else, is useful in moderation.

Deny the persistent need to find reasons

Not to be happy; we all deserve to be.
