Self


Self direction is a virtue
A quality of strength
The development of self
Responsibility at length

An image of this strength
Independence and reliance
Characteristic at length
With self-assertion and less defiance

Stability and intellect
Contributing to success
The strength of self-direction
Achievement more than less

Effective in enhancing
Attitudes which promote
A component of a process
Negative attitudes to garrote

A sense of autonomy
Through the concept of relating
To build a one time wanna-be
To a better self elating

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
