A lyrical text I wrote a while back attempting to encourage the reader/listener to be the best current version of themselves as they can possibly manage.
I wrote the text based on a personal friendship that took a hit, as we failed to keep clear and honest communication. I wasn't being as good as I could, I wasn't being the friend I could have been. You can read, and decide if the text has any value for you.

You're as bright as your smile, gentle and kind.

Your smile is deceptive, kindness as shield.

You could conquer the world, but you're conquered by fear.

Be as good as you can, don't let them question, how you feel.

Be as good as are, don't let them near your heart.

 

You know how it hurts, I can tell by the spark in your eye.

You don't let me in and you don't let me feel your pain.

I showed you my scars and you showed me your shield.

Be as good as you can, don't let me question, how you feel.

Be as good as you are, don't let me near your heart.

 

Gentle and kind will only get you so far.

Love will take many forms, you can lay down your shield.

Be brave, no not for me, but I want you to be ha-ha-appy.

Be as good as you can, don't you question, how you feel.

Be as good as you are, don't let you near your heart.

 

Invite in the pain, let it sit for a while.

take a look at your fear, and practice a smile.

Girl you got love, Let it out, let them be inspired by your bravery.

Be as good as you can, make them question, how you feel.

Be as good as you are, let them near your heart.

 

I used to deny happiness in my life.

when I get down, you come around, listen closely like nobody before.

reaching out my hand, let me do the same for you,

Be as good as you can, make me question, how you feel.

Be as good as you are, Let me near your heart.

 

Smile at suffering and you will see it go.

Hide from suffering and you will see it grow.

If you dare, take my hand, and we can smile at the world.

Be as good as you can, make you question, how you feel.

Be as good as you are, let you near your heart.
