Song#: 10

Album
Name of Song: Always Being

I am just being me,
I try to be what I decide to see.
I own what I am being,
What others see, I tend to let be.

I stopped from trying to be another,
It seems to waste so much of time,
I can look at how they observe things,
That’s enough, it seems just fine.

I am not another’s viewpoint,
Although I can see what they can see,
Keeping separate and not collapsing,
Into things we urge to be.

I am myself and getting better,
I lost the urge to forget that,
But the practice to stay myself is..
A longer journey than just a chat.

The more I learn about my character,
The more I see a simple truth,
Just a constant desire to be better,
While keeping in mind the lighter touch.

Does this journey go on and on forever,
Are we following a never ending school of hope,
Is living and dying simply a game that keeps us busy,
Always trying to find ourselves in an endless cope.

I am just being me,
I try to be what I decide to see.
I own what I am being,
What others see, I tend to let be.
