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

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!

    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

    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.
