That Spirit Though

You wake up in the morning

feeling so alive and fresh

You smile into your mirror

You dance while you get dressed

Your happy heart ignites with light

And life seems beautiful again

But that little nagging voice says

“Let the doubt sink back in”

Your spirit though is bright enough

to power through the dark

It’s what makes you beautiful

and gives the world a spark

So tell the voice to shut the fuck up

and darken your door no more

Because loving yourself dear

shouldn’t be such a chore
