Myself Within - Poem by Cherry Lyn Daigo

I just wanna live happy/ live my life simply/ I dont ask for too much /all I want is a heart /of courage and love/I am afraid of failures /but they are always around/ I often chase success but myself is not enough/ afraid to fail but i think i have/i wanna be strong but i dont know how/I tend to step forward but i used to be a coward/ one word to ask..answer will last/ You, who love and support me /would you be disappointed if i just chose to be me? /

Topic(s) of this poem: fear

    These wonderful lines reflect inner beauty. (May it unfold and show itself!) The Muse of Poetry will smile on someone who thinks as you do. The gifts of the Muse usually come with gifts in other areas of life.

    Great self-reflection, using others as a mirror to figure things out! Learning to trust yourself is the first step to achieving your dreams in spite of turmoil in life. In order to be able to tell the truth, you must first acknowledge it in yourself! Always be who you are and you will never be wrong, never fail, because you have stood up for yourself, alone! Great poem, loved it! Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Hi Cherry. Thanks for your poem. By all means, be you. It's okay to live simply and be happy at it. It's also okay to ask 'for more'. We have not because we ask not. Keep reaching for the star you want to land on. If you fail to reach your star, you will land on another one near by. Failure in many respects is just another way of saying, Start Over. GBU. Curtis.
