Thousands of Reasons

Thousands of Reasons
by Doe Zantamata

If every morning,
You can find a reason to say,
"Yes, it's going to be a beautiful day."

And every day, you find a reason to say,
"Yes, it is a beautiful day."

And every night,  you find a reason to say,
"Yes, it was a beautiful day."

Then one day,
You'll look back and easily say,
"Yes...it was a beautiful life."

Decision Time

Decision Time
by Doe Zantamata

When you really decide,
and not just wish.

When you really commit,
and not just try.

When you really take responsibility,
and not just hope....

That's when the miracles happen.

Just Because

Just BecauseBy Doe Zantamata

Just because that person doesn't find you interesting,
It doesn't mean that you're not interesting.

Just because that person doesn't see your worth,
It doesn't mean that you don't have great worth.

Just because that person doesn't appreciate you,
It doesn't mean there's not a whole lot about you to appreciate.

Just because that person doesn't believe in you,
It doesn't mean there's no reason to believe in you.

Just because that person doesn't love you,
It doesn't mean that you're not loveable.

Just be sure of one thing...
Just be sure "that person" isn't you.

Know that you are interesting, have great worth, and are appreciated.

Believe in yourself, and know that you are loveable...
and don't you dare settle for anyone who doesn't agree.

I am not a wave
I am the ocean

I have not crashed and broken.

I rise, I fall,
I rise once more.

Tired, yes, but stronger,
Wiser than before.

It may take time
for me to mend
But as long as I breathe
It is not, will not, be
The end.
