The Introduction

i'm finding that the answers we search for everywhere else
are actually lying in wait within ourselves
we search in books, in people and places too
but it won't be found in things it's true
your answers are found lying in wait
deep in the mind we ache to escape
introduce the you that the world created
to the you underneath all the things that weren't fated
undo all the things the world has taught you
about what is and what isn't and what is "wrong" with you
what you should do and what you shouldn't
what you could do and what you couldn't
these boxes and boundaries they just might
be equally confining as stereotypes
they cripple us, break us, and leave us empty
when all we all want is to be truly happy
stop searching without for the answers are within
introduce you to you, nice to meet you old friend
