Inspirational Poem

Believe In Yourself And You'll Accomplish Anything

Growth comes with different development stages, some positive and some negative, causing one to develop certain mindsets that can work for them or hurt them.
I developed mindsets of self-doubt and self-sabotage based on how other people saw me, based on other people's standards of qualification and forgot I was the one living my life.
But not anymore because I took my life into my own hands, and so can you.

I Believe

Published by Family Friend Poems June 5, 2022

Into this world I came,
The light of the sun,
On my face I craved.
In the cool breezing wind,
Under the moonlight I sat,
I thought,
I pondered,
I knew,
I was great.

Slowly they got to me,
Their expectations,
I couldn't catch up.
Their opinions,
They cut to the deep.
Their constant watch,
I became stunned.
Beauty faded,
Strength waxed away,

And then I grew up.
They mattered no more.
All the lies I believed,
Like a flood on sloppy hills,
I let them run down.
New mindsets I built,
Strong confidence I gained,
Because I knew for the best,
It was I that mattered.

Like the Phoenix, I rise,
From the ashes of doubt,
From the ashes of contempt.
Like an eagle I soar,
To the ends of the earth,
To the storms that may be,
Because I have believed
I have all it takes,
I have all I need.

My dreams run wild,
My imagination unlimited.
I know what I want,
I know how to get it.
Like the sun,
I shine my light.
Like the stars,
My glory prevails,
Because I have believed.
