"Strength, Courage, and Wisdom" as written by and India Arie Simpson....
Inside my head there lives a dream that I want to see in the sun
Behind my eyes there lives a me that I've been hiding for much too long
'Cause I've been, too afraid to let it show
'Cause I'm scared of the judgment that may follow
Always putting off my living for tomorrow
It's time to step out on faith, I've gotta show my faith
It's been illusive for so long, but freedom is mine today
I've gotta step out on faith, It's time to show my faith
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found
Strength, courage, and wisdom
And it's been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me
Behind my pride there lives a me, that knows humility
Inside my voice there is a soul, and in my soul there is a voice
But I've been, too afraid to make a choice
'Cause I'm scared of the things that I might be missing
Running too fast to stop and listen
It's time to step out on faith, I've gotta show my faith
It's been illusive for so long but freedom is mine today
I've gotta step out on faith it's time to show my faith
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found
Strength, courage, and wisdom
And it's been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me
I close my eyes and I think of all the things that I want to see
'Cause I know, now that I've opened up my heart I know that
Anything I want can be, so let it be, so let it be:.
Strength, courage, and wisdom
It's been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, wisdom
It's been inside of me all along, everyday I'm praying for:
Strength, courage, and wisdom
To find me, yeah,
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me
Vamp
I found it in me, I found it finally
I'm sure to keep it' cause I like it, I say thank you

    General CommentIts an all around feel good song! I feel so good when I hear this song! I think its a song of encouragement and positivity. I have been through some ups and downs in my life and felt at times that i had no strength left.. but thanks to music, I can let off some steam...! =) if we all look deep inside ourselves and have faith in ourselves we can accomplish anything.

    General CommentThis is a cathartic song. It's like when you feel defeated and then realize by someone or some experience that you have this amazing and wonderful gift "inside of you all along." It's pretty amazing! And it's not conceit but an affirmation, a confirmation of the value and worth each person has as a human being.

    We often do not realize the power and possibility that lies underneath our very being!
