Treasure Island

Lyn Paul


Be Proud.... Stand Tall!

Believe in who you are. Stop looking for mistakes
Only you are searching. Making your own heart ache
We punish ourselves today, yet tomorrow we ask why?
Why we put ourselves through this?
Making ourselves cry.
The heartaches of today. Are all that they are
Tomorrow they are gone. And you realise just how far
How far. How long and what you have learnt upon the way
What once seemed hard. Is now as clear as day
As clear as day
As clear as light
As clear as the moon
On a heavenly night
So remember the clear will come to us all
Just accept WHO you are
Be proud...Stand TALL!

We can not share wisdom for it is earnt
How beautiful life is; when you see what you have learnt.

    Absolutely marvelous! If there were ways, I would have given this poem more than 10, but since it's not possible to do that, just 10/10.
    The poem is truly inspiring. Those who are passing through low, will certainly feel high after reading this poem. The last stanza is simply a piece of gem.
    The note boosts the low morale. WE DON'T NEED THE HIGH HEELS- what a wonderful way of saying so! Well done! (Report) Reply

    life is built on a pyramid, one layer at a time.
    no I am not proud of yesterday's accomplishments .
    only today's count.
    Pride is a backseat arrogrance, while I am driving from the front seat.
    Let me never be satisfied, because I will have turned into old.
    Let look into the rising sun, if it blinds me, it's warmth I will not scold. (Report) Reply

    Good creed, sometimes we all get a bit bogged down when we don't quite achieve what we set out to do and then question ourselves, but we learn from all endeavours. nice one Lyn, oh, and thanks for the day (Report) Reply

    I am not born as a mountain to be so tall, i am not like ocean who has heart so deep but i am only a person who can change my world as my soul tell...I bare my soul but no one still can see who i am but i dont care of wrong assumption, bad persuasion, i am tall than others because i am born as me...and I am, Unwritten Soul......inspiring thought by u_Soul (Report) Reply

    Well said Lyn, very true - we should all stand tall, the problem is when others are always trying to put you down. Such people are just feeding their own egos at the expense of others, and we should learn to ignore them. (Report) Reply

    A great poem and so true, we are a nation of people who likes
    to moan, but if we stop and look back our lives have not been that bad.
    Some people spend so much time wanting to be like someone else
    they forget who they are and what they have got. (Report) Reply
