For Myself - Poem by Kellsey Hartmann

The recognition
That little whisper
When the world seems to notice
That one thing you did right

The colors
The setting sun
When the day and night meet
With fading and final light

The love
That happy contentedness
When you look at some one
And realize they're worth the fight

I won't give up
I won't give in
I won't fail this time
I won't let this win

I'll conquer my cowardice
I'll forget self-regret
I'll forget my doubts
I'll give them something not to forget

I'm not like them
I am me
I'm not big or bold
though I know I can be

It's my fight
I fight for these
I love this life
In MYSELF I believe

...Even when no one else will
