I need a reminder daily.

----
All this time I’ve been thinking
All this time I’ve been longing
For a way to fade in to the crowd

When will I find it?
When will I see it?
A reflection that’s not my own

I try to avoid it, I try to forget it,
But the voices keep echoing
Of an image of beauty
That‘s measured out to be
Nothing more than a lie

*Images all around me
Images are everywhere
Images flooding all the corners of my mind
Shaping who I am and all I’ve wanted just to be
Help me to remember that I’m in your image

I can’t help but believe them
I can’t help but I hear them
All this noise surrounds me
But at the end of the day, at the end of today
I will stand again
