Not Everything Echoes

I saw a rock with sorrowful eyes
Clouds with a body stronger than mine
A glass lake with a mind to harm us
Not everything echoes itself back to you
Even if it was me who cried in the night

We don’t always live under stormy skies
Only the threat that lives in our mind
It’s not what our anger cares to discuss
I don’t know enough to argue what is true
But wherever I cross the smiles feel right

All this talk is avoiding you and I know why
Whatever strength is mine I don’t care to find
I don’t want a picture, only your hearts trust
But does rejection make a stones eyes blue
Or a lake rise up and show you it’s might?

Hi Paul. You have to find your inner soul and worth first. Seeking validation from others is a losing game sometimes. I finally decided I'm worthy of anyone; but people have different desires in life. There are very few people (men and women) who I can truly say "get me." I think it's that way for many people. You can't force it. Once you know who you are it may be that "your people" will appear. Stay strong.

Before, I keep on seeking approval of other people....when validation don't come, I get depressed.... I currenlty buidling myself again....to rise mightily after the recent devastating rejection... :(
