' I Stand With Confidence ' - Poem by Riquetta Elliott

People treat me like dirt with
Judged envy, but I stand
With confidence.
People called my beauty
Ugly of jealously, still I
Stand with confidence.
People whisper when I perform,
Still I stand with confidence.
A parent tell the truth of my
Physicals she makes I stand
Up.

    very nice riquetta. This was an inspiring poem that made me think about lifes trials and tribulations. The best way to overcome them is to stand with confidence, and keep on doing what you think is right. Excellent display of that. (Report)Reply

    Dear Riquetta...
    Within each of us
    Lies the ability to
    Soar high as with wings...

    With your confidence, you are soaring!

    oh it's a nice poem but it really should be ' i stand with confidence' not confident. It doesn't make sense in english otherwise. Speaking of which, is your first language english? Oh and I'm a young writer here too, I've been writting all my life though, since about 8 or 9, but back then they were much like yours, just beginning. Soon enough you'll grow and your poems will mature. Good luck in whatever you wish to do with your writting. (Report)Reply
