Self-Love or Self-Frustration

We pressure ourselves,
We push ourselves,
We drive ourselves to excellence,

We undermine ourselves,
We doubt ourselves,
We suffer in silent frustration,
We complain saying we are not appreciated,

Does one ever wonder for who we drive?
For whom we seek appreciation,
Is that we aren't really great for others,
Or we just lust more than one can handle,

The best way is a smile,
The best is one’s own appreciation,
The pat on your back,
Saying job well done,
That self-truth,

Its self-love we need,
Its self-appreciation,
We are never enough for our mirror,
We self-frustrate,
We self-doubt,
We self-depreciate,
Leaving us frustrated nothing other,

Wake up tomorrow smile at one's self,
Say that today you will shine like no other,
Go to sleep tonight smile at one's self,
Say that job well done you did it like no other.

It disgusts me to observe,
It disgusts me to see,
Man made in gods own image,
Is pathetic than we see,

The ages have changed us,
The ages dummed us,
The ages made us whiners,
The ages cheapened us,

The more I observe,
The more I listen,
The more I empathize,
The more I help,

The more it disgusts me,
The more anger I feel,
The more cynical I see you,
The more hopeless I feel,

Humanity has betrayed us,
Now humans don't want change,
Now humans are about the talking,
Now humans whine more than an ear can take,

What happened to ages that deeds spoke louder,
What happened to ages of changes,
What happened to open brave people,
What happened to the good old days,

I still try to be hopeful,
Still believe they can change,
Still believe they can be more than whiners,
Am I a fool or courageous in my own way,

I pray for the change you seek,
I pray that you whine less,
I pray your frustration turns into focus,
I pray for change each and everyday.

corazón heart любовь 心

It is the heart that pumps us,
It is the heart that drives us,
It is the heart that leads us,
It is the heart that hurts us,

The heart which opens us,
The heart which scares us,
The heart which scars us,
The heart which hides us,

Following the heart risks us,
Fooling the heart hides us,
Loving with the heart unites us,
Saving a heart redeems us,

The heart The mind controls us,
Fooling them both one day might save us.
