Be Proud.... Stand Tall! Poem by Lyn Paul

Be Proud.... Stand Tall!

Rating: 4.9

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.

Standing tall with pillars of goodness is definitely great. Best wishes and right plans allow us to grow and get success. Clear day and clear moon motivate us giving us light. An interesting poem is very well penned.10

Reading this poem has made my morning brighter. A positive inspirational poem. It reads like a strong affirmation to repeat to ourselves, self-knowing, self-acceptance and self-forgiveness. We all make mistakes. We are each beautiful in our own unique way. Lets share that beauty the best we can. Just forgive and move on and reach for that next higher poem.
