    im lookin at my life and all the pain ive caused
    im mainly pointin fingers cuz im stuck in my own life
    confession of the mind- im not perfect
    not even close, not even in my own right

    lookin at my life and the cards thats been delt
    i know so many ppl would love to walk in my shoes
    sometimes it can be alittle overwhelmin
    but not as painful as some otha ppl's dues

    lookin at my life and the ppl lthat live in it
    sometimes i have the tendacy to push ppl away
    im so **** picky, but thats not always bad
    but it is when they just wanna love u anyway

    lookin at my life and the talent thats been given
    i know god has blessed me
    sometimes its not gonna be easy
    he's gotta take some time out to test me

    lookin at my life and lookin back then to now
    ive come a long way in fact
    lookin at my life(smile), ive noticed...
    its not that bad.
