Believe In Yourself


Believe in yourself,
And what you can be,
And not what others,
Think that you are,
Believe in your dreams,
And what you can achieve,
If you work towards your goal,
Believe in tomorrow,
And the hope that it brings,
With the dawn of each new day,
Believe in love,
And the one that you love,
The person you know him to be,
But the most important of all of these,
Is that you believe in you.

    I'm wondering if this layout helps improve
    the meanings, if so, you could copy and
    upload the second version with a new title
    to explain it refers to a lady, not to a man.

    Christian Regards, Denis Martindale.



    Lady, Believe In Yourself!


    Lady, believe in yourself,
    And what you can be,
    And not what others think that you are.

    Believe in your dreams,
    And what you can achieve,
    If you work towards your goal.

    Believe in tomorrow
    And the hope that it brings,
    With the dawn of each new day.

    Believe in love,
    And the one that you love,
    The person you know him to be.

    But the most important
    Of all of these,
    Is that you believe in YOU!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
