    Is my butt too little , is my butt to big?
    Is my wallet full enough, do I have the right stuff?
    Am I good enough to get this job , am I right for this gig?
    Is my nose to big, do I talk to black, is there any going back?
    Endless questions without answers, that we phrase to ourselves
    self destructive messages that stay locked in our heads.
    Does he/she love me? and why?
    Do I deserve God's love when I die?
    Was it a senseless good bye, did I really give my all did I try?
    Senseless destruction of inner belief, comes to rob and steal
    like a thief.
    Eroding our God given royal lineage by birth our heritage.
    Do I give to little do I give to much?
    Am I deserving of the warmest of touch?
    Am I too loose in my moral decisions, should I be more reserved
    in my ways?
    Will I have what they sing about in those love songs?
    Will there ever be "Betta days..."?

    How I search for the answers inside me, never really taking
    the time to stop and meditate on the one true thing!!!!I
    We were made in his image...and he is the King of Kings?
    Now it is inconceivable to see , what has truly been chipping
    away at you and me, when we foster insecurity?
    In our bosoms and bellies like cancers they grow?
    Never giving the answer that we all need to know?
    My purpose? Am I up to the challenge?
    Do I have what it takes?
    Will I ever be happy?
    Can I fix my mistakes?
    Perhaps not..."For in our infirmities we are made strong"!
    the verse that rings through my head makes me strong!
    It was there all along?
    The answer to the question you see, is God gave me and you
    all the tools we need to be the best "ME" we can be!
    That is the knowledge I drop from this tree...
    No one is perfect, but not all insecure...some are uncertain
    but not constantly unsure!
    I have the tools to be the best "ME" I can be!


    The mantra that will release you from the demon insecurity!
    God didn't give us the spirit of fear.
    Look in the mirror and love what ou see, and ask
    Insecurity how did you get here...Be gone, disappear!
    Cause the spirit of "Redemption" lives inside of me.
    Bonafide and certified, decreed by each breath that we
    take...where there is life , there is always the chance..
    to recreate
    And today is the day that truly matter's!
    With constant voices of dismay our security shatters.
    Remember to see the best of you and me!
    No adversaries greater than the voice in your head.
    That says you never should have gotten out of bed!!!!!!!!!!!
    But with courage and faith and believe in yourself, place
    insecurities in their right place...
    remember we can't walk
    in faith and fear.
    Security in GOD,SELF,PURPOSE...IS WHAT KEEPS ME HERE!
    Replace insecurities with that, take fear and doubt straight to the mat.
    Ain't no place for you with me.
    Say good- bye to insecurities!

    On point as usual, we do tend to be our own worst enemies. God doesn't make mistakes....flow on.
