The Compliments you Give

The world may applaud you, the world may not

You wonder if you are as good as you thought

Yourself to be, though you have much confidence

In your abilities, in your defense

Doubt creeps up when no one around you

Seems to acknowledge your value

Your growing bubble blown on self-confidence so far

Bursts, and you wonder if your performance has been subpar

You look around, try to be as objective as you can be

About your talent, and quite honestly

There are people with much more to offer, it’s true

But in quality of work, many do not match you

They are admired much more than you have ever been

You wonder how your talent remains unseen


Then you complete a project, of yourself you are proud

“Well-done,” your inner voice calls out to you loud

You admire your finished work, you are oblivious

You know this is good, to look for compliments is frivolous
