    You think it's all about you
    Cause' you're tied up in your own little self
    Looking out your little windows
    Guarding the things stored on your little shelf
    Where you keep your perceived reality
    The things that make you you
    And you struggle to keep your balance
    In all the things you say and do
    Like the fisherman catching the big ones
    And promptly measuring them and throwing them back
    You keep looking for the size you know
    That will leave your little world in tact
    When questioned about your actions
    You smile psuedo confidently and state your plan
    It's to only deal with the fish
    That'll comfortably fit your little frying pan
    So opportunity keeps coming
    As you claim to never get the right breaks
    And you keep convincing your little self
    Not to do the things that it takes
    To move out of the little box
    That you've imprisoned your little self in
    Out into the ocean of possibilities
    Just inches from your own chin
    But your eyes can never see
    What could be in store for you
    As long as your mind continues
    To interpret the many as just a few
    As long as things define you
    Instead of you taking the defining role
    As long as you work with only a part of your potentials
    And imprison, ignore and deny the whole

    I really like this post.
    It captivated me from the first line.
    I feel as if I'm just pulling out of that mentality.
    Thanks for this post and I
    hope to read more in the future!

    I agree with Ms.Understood on this...Is there a mind reader in our midst? Very deep and introspective scribe.
