“What will this day be like…I wonder. What will my future be…I wonder.
It could be so exciting to be out in the world to be free. My heart should be wildly rejoicing. Oh what’s the matter with me? I’ve always longed for adventure to do the things, I never did. And here I’m facing adventure. Then why am I so scared. A captain with seven children. What’s so fearsome about that? Oh I must stop these doubts all these worries. If I don’t I just know I’ll come back. I must dream of the things I am seeking. I am seeking the courage I lack. The courage to serve them with reliance. Show them I’m worthy without defiance. Show them I’m equal and while I show them, I’ll show me. So let them bring all of their problems I’ll do better than my best. I have confidence they’ll put me to the test. Besides which you see I have confidence in me. Somehow I will impress them. I will be firm but kind. And all those children, Heaven bless them. They wil look up to me and mind me. With each step I am more certain. Everything will turn out fine. I have confidence the world will all be mine. Besides which you see I have confidence in me. I have confidence in sunshine. I have confidence in rain. I have confidence that spring will come again. Besides which you see I have confidence in me. Strength doesn’t lie in numbers, strength doesn’t lie in wealth, strength lies in nights of peaceful slumbers. When you wake up, wake up! It can be all I trust I leave my heart to. All I trust becomes my own. I have confidence in confidence alone…..besides which you see, I have confidence in meeeeee!”
