feeling of inadequacy invades the minds of all at times

but it is just lies of the mind that sometime confines

we must stay in line with the truth we know and the truth we seek

if we are true to our self our truth others will speak

we our stronger than we know

do not let the doubt in your mind not allow you to grow

create your fate

be great.
