Believing in yourself is an endless destination. Believing you have failed is the end of the journey.- Sarah Meredith
My fragile spirit was crushed times innumerable
No faith in myself made obstacles insurmountable
My confidence was weighed down by sheets of reproach
Every problem I tackled with a fearful approach
Afraid was I of being laughed at, being judged
So every day with a load on my back, I trudged
Each step loaded with self-loathing and doubt
I clamored for help, but no one heard me shout…
I did not know when our paths first crossed
It was a gesture of help that fate had for me tossed
Whether it was love, or attraction undefined
The flow of emotions cleansed my soul and my mind
Those eyes became the mirrors to my heart
Through them I perceived, albeit with a start
How constantly fearful, I’d weighed myself down
And only despair could I perceive around..
Appreciation I found, and it felt so great
I wondered why I had found this path so late
The bittersweet experience of this infatuation
Was eclipsed by the discovery of my liberation!
Years have now passed, and I still falter
Major setbacks can my confidence alter
I bounce back always, that much is certain
Life’s like a stage show, and I’ve not drawn the curtain..
The world can raise its voice in a shrill cacophony
My self-confidence can silence those noises for me..
