Don't be afraid to give it a try;
You've nothing more to lose.
Victory is only gained with risk.
There's strength inside for you to use.

No one can believe in you
Until you believe in yourself.
Just take a breath, and find a smile,
Then step down off the shelf.

You're missing out on all the things
That can bring you peace of mind.
The joys of life are really there,
Just seek, and you will find.

Time slips away too quickly
To waste a day in sorrow.
The joys that we ignore today
May not come again tomorrow.
