I'm proud of myself
Do you say that to yourself often
When you keep your eyes shut to not let mother be tensed
When you keep all the abuse inside and despite wake up and go to work
When you want to shut yourself from everything
But still hope for a better day
When you want to scream your sorrows out to someone
But holds self to listen to else
When you get tired of those extra societal expectations
But still continue to put your learnings before them
When days seem dull and you just want to crawl into bed
Yet you put yourself out and face the world When nobody seems to support
But those online quotes keep you afloat
When you feel like giving up
But still fight Because your dreams are bigger than the moonlight
And all that time All those days Do tell yourself I'm proud of myself .
When was the last time you appreciated yourself,
been proud of your little achievements,
praised yourself for surviving and overcoming the obstacles life has posed in your path?
This poem was created with the idea to be proud of ourselves for coming this far, for having the strength to keep going, fighting through all the odds and still striving for our dreams. Here's to us, being proud of ourselves.
