What I Think I Know..

It's not about what's done for you but what you can do for others
Its not about "karma" or "getting even", It's about getting everything out of yourself that you can
It's about taking chances, falling, and getting back up
It's about letting people in
It's about pride and when it comes to matters of the heart, there is none
It's about growth, and how there's never a finish line, just new journeys
It's about going after things you want, we are our biggest obstacles
It's not seeing the whole world, but being the world to someone, and not letting them down

It's putting others first, because we can always have it worse
It's attitude, and finding ways to see the best in everything
It's not ignorance, it's ambition and hope and compassion
It's understanding, that things happen for a reason and sometimes it's not going to bring our spirits up
Sometimes it's going to hurt
Sometimes we're going to cry
But with every day comes a new opportunity to overcome what we need to
And be the person we want to see in the mirror

It's not focusing on our failures
It's realizing what change we want from this world
The change that we always complain and bicker about
That change... It's not so far away
It's inside of you, waiting to break through
Ghandi said it, we need to be the change we want to see in this world
Nothing is what it seems
It's not accepting who you are
It's not letting us settle for who we seem
It's becoming more
