Look Inside

Put you on a pedestal
And I would worship
At your wisdom and knowledge
Never looking within to find
What exists in my own soul
Unfair setup for failure
To expect so much from you
Leaving my life’s happiness
My personal development
In the breath of your words
That could blow me
To hell or heaven in one utterance
Until I began to close my eyes
And venture deep within
Listen more than speak
Without determining anything
Or silencing any sounds
I heard great wisdom and guidance
And let you come down to my level
Took faith in my own abilities
No longer looking for heroes in others
Or people to disappointment me
Because they couldn’t live up
To what I had built them to be
Accepting we can each plug in
To the energy of the Universe
And into ourselves
