I thought it about time
To sit down in my line
Of thought, and make some sense
Out of my life.
But, as I looked out into the rain
I realized it wasn't that easy
Because as I pondered about my life
I caught a glimpse of insecurity
And could smell the coward that layed within
Those things I couldn't face
They were what was wrong with me
And why point out all the bad?
But the more I thought
As I looked outside into the gloom
And the sky that turned to black from gray...
I realized one more thing
That I was still me
And the package I came with included many mistakes
And quirks.
So one last long look proved to me nothing
That I could see,
gazing through clouds into the bright sun,
That tommorow would surely bring.

How does that saying go..into each bright day, some rain must fall? If that's the case, it must go the other way too, right?
Sounds like you see it too.
