I

I will cry to smile
But I won't smile to cry
I'd rather live in truth
Than spend my life in a lie
I prefer to do what's right
Instead of always wondering why
I've made an enemy of regret
All guilt I will defy
I will focus on what I need
Not just the things I want
I will carry my mistakes with me
Remember what I've been taught
I will be so much better
Better than you ever thought
I will give myself some credit
For all the battles that I've fought
I'll tell myself I love me
More than you've ever could
I will do it with conviction
The way you never would
I'll stay true to who I am
Appreciate what I have to give
Keep my love inside intact
Do the best I can to live
I'll mean the things I say
And do what must be done
When it's hard I'll walk away
From mistreatment by anyone
Because I stand for myself
And I know what I deserve
I will not allow someone else
To dictate how much I'm worth
Although I am by no means perfect
I feel that I am worthy of love
Because I treat others how I'd like to be treated
And for me that's always been enough
