Standing Up For Myself

Rating: 5.0
I will truly accept myself today
No more worrying about what you say
I will do what I really want to do
No longer will I be controlled by you.

I will be more of the real me
You may just not like what you see
But to my own self I will be true
Whether or not it matters to you.

No more me saying yes to please
I will say the word no with ease
Too many times I let those others lead
That is not the way for me to succeed.

I will be who I am right now
And to your ways I will not bow
For I have ways of my own that work just fine
Because my life is not yours my life is mine.

I will truly accept myself today
No more worrying about what you say
I will do what I really want to do
No longer will I be controlled by you.

Hi Connie, I was wondering if this poem is published anywhere in print. I am wanting to use it for competition and for documentation we must prove that the poem is published in print of some form. Thank you in advance for letting me know as soon as possible!
