Nothing Should Bring You Down - Poem by Sharon Matendechere

You, young lass, sit sulkily,
Sad about something said to you recently,
One question you should ask yourself,
Will you take in everything and in your head shelf?

This is a challenge i'm giving you lad,
Restore to yourself the esteem you once had,
Let not simple words make you crumble,
For this in life will cause you to stumble.

Appreciate yourself for who you are,
Because in this way I assure you'll get far,
Let not what I say be something new,
Surely, there could never be, a more beautiful you!

This was inspired by all the people who struggle to make it their business to hurt the poet's feelings and make one feel inadequate...

    nice poem, i guess we all sulk a little when we are young adults and get a little criticism from our peers, but it is an important part of learning to take it on the chin and learn from it, costructive criticism that is, otherwise tell them where to get off, nice one. (Report) Reply
