“Tell Yourself.”

When you hear the rain
And you know it’s raining
Yet you tell yourself it’s not
How does one get through to a person like that?

When you see the snow fall
And you know it’s falling
Yet you tell yourself it’s not
How do you show that person the truth?

When you see the fire burn
And you know it’s burning down the house
Yet you tell yourself it’s not
How does one watch that and not feel saddened?

When you’re standing in oncoming traffic
And you see the truck about to hit you
Yet you tell yourself it’s not
How does one stay in that cycle?

When you feel the crushing of your spirit
And you yearn constantly for something else
Yet you tell yourself it’s not
How does one sleep at night in true rest?

When you’re living the life you don’t care to live
And something much greater is at your fingertips
Yet you tell yourself it’s not
How can that be your reality?
