Guess Who? - Poem by Angela Wybrow
You often say you don't possess any confidence,
But the things you've achieved are quite immense.
Of the whole world, you often say you are scared,
But the things you have done, just do not compare.
You've managed to overcome so much fear;
You've managed to step things up another gear.
Your determination and true grit, I really admire;
Sometimes, it seems that your whole soul is on fire.
Your intelligence, others do their best to play down,
But, one day, you may get to wear a cap and gown.
In you, others may really despair and not believe,
But, you'd be surprised at what you can achieve.
As a person, you've always been quiet and shy,
But you're often willing to give new things a try.
You're extremely sensitive, and you easily cry,
But with encouragement and help, you will get by.
You get anxious and panic, and are full of worry;
You're also very cautious, and don't like to hurry.
Given any task, you'll always try your very best,
And, until it is totally perfect, you will not rest.
Someone once described you as a real go-getter;
Recently, you've changed, and it's for the better.
Your old life and ways, you are slowly erasing;
It has to be said, you really are truly amazing.
