Inside OUT


On the outside,
it's where you wear your inside
and you cannot hide
no matter how many layers you wear
or try to distract as you accessorize....
what gives you away is that you are uncomfortable
you shift
and you straighten
but your pants don't fit
and in your heart
you feel you just don't fit in
not in your clothes
or in with your friends
or in your life
like they cast the wrong body
to play your body.

Inside there is a woman
dying to be lived out
that looks nothing like you
who is not self conscious or stressed
who walks with a little self confidence
and she is thinking of you
as much as you are thinking of who you could be
if you put in the effort.

Letting your outside meet with your inside
where your thoughts become actions
and actions fuel goals
and by putting one foot after the other
and running the miles it takes to reach her,
reach you.

When you are determined
and when your inside and your outside
become so similar
the success is palpable
reachable
and your living it
your doing it
your loving life
and not distracted anymore
with how your pants don't fit.
