is presented to us
in a way that changes
how we perceive ourselves, other people, events, the world.
in a way that roughs up
our mental faculties
and kicks our cognitive dissonance

Exposure is important,
for you must learn
a new way to think
before you can master,
a new way to be.
if you’re not going to change your mind,
why have one?

no matter who betrays your trust
no matter who breaks your heart
no matter who lets you down when you need them most
no matter how many times they kick you when you’re down,
no matter how many times you fall
no matter how many times you fail
no matter how many times you’re back is against the wall
no matter how many times you feel like giving up
every time you feel down and out,
Remember there is a light within
you only have to allow it to
you only have to give in.
whenever you feel like
your life is dark and lonely
everything life throws at you
is a lesson.
Shine so bright that
you light the way
who are but
wanderers in the dark
of the light within.
