Believing in Ourselves

It is all a matter of faith
Just how and what we believe,
It is all a matter of our image
And the very way we perceive.

It's a matter of trust and of conscience,
And learning to value our creed,
To be content with what we have
To look and to meet the need.

We need to believe that we can do it
And for courage we need, to ask,
In faith to reach out a hand
And to be equal to the task.

We need to believe our thoughts are driven
By compassion and tender care,
That we can help those in need,
Simply by being there.

It is so very important
That we hold on to the thought
That others also belive in us
And give us their strong support.

So take yourself at face value,
Look in the mirror and view
Is the love that shines from within
Looking right back at you?

Beieve in yourself and what you see
Will be what others can see too.
They will know of your love and care
And they will also believe in you.
