Not the tangible something unseen

down deep inside in the in between

where others may doubt and not believe

your belief is not what they perceive


A life lived not for others or on what they say

for it is up to you to find another way

it is within your own mind the strength to find

to all others keep your belief blind


What lies within stronger than all that surrounds without

these people do not know what you are about

supposition rumor predisposed opinion mean nothing to you

it is only your soul that knows what is true


Belief in oneself comes inside through highs and lows

it comes in the places no one else knows

always it should come first from your own soul

never depend on others to make your belief whole


Open yourself to the possibilities inside

new adventures new journeys steps to take

every part of your soul nothing to hide

success in this life is something you make

Open your soul to what is real what is true

bypass the fake ignore the lies

the journey begins right inside of you

success only comes to he who tries

Open your mind to learn more every day

every moment has something to teach

absorb knowledge listen to what those who have paved the way have to say

success is in your path all you need do is reach

Open your heart to those who would seek to guide

those who can teach and can be part of the team

success is a journey be sure to enjoy the ride

and everything can be yours all you need do is dream

Deborah Horton Writing


On the road to who you will become you must feed the desire

stoke the coals and tend the heart’s fire

listen closely to what your soul says following your dream

so much easier and yet harder than it can seem

The path to who you can become is managed only by you

not what others think what they say or anything they do

for only you can determine where your path will end

and all along your heart’s fire you must always tend

Reach out for what you want let nothing stop you

listen only to yourself to know what is right and what is true

let no one hold you down hold you back make you stumble or fall

for it is up to you to become all

The road to who you can become is filled with twists and turns

and it is only you who knows for what your soul yearns

listen closely tend the fires always moving ahead

following your dreams to where you will be led

Know that what you wish to become is well within your power

now is the time to start this minute this very hour

all that you can become is waiting just for you

take what you want by what you say and do

Success is what you make it all in what you do

the way you take a dream and see it through

no one else can give it to you it’s something that you earn

and in success it’s through failure that you truly learn

Success can be in the small things or in the very great

but it does not come to those who sit and wait

only to you who are willing to work to sacrifice to begin again and again

to never see a roadblock as truly an end

Success comes to those who never point fingers or blame others when they fail

when they stumble they never whine or wail

responsible for their own mistakes and for their own shots at being great

they open their own doors and walk through their own gates

Success has to be created, worked for, taken by you

with every word you speak or write, with everything you do

no one can give it to you it comes from deep inside

in the heart of the successful all great things reside
