    anger has engulfed my every being
    never me, now i need to stop fronting
    tell my feelings as there are...keeping them
    sealed in my heart is killing me slow
    trying to be perfect, I'll never be
    pleasing everyone, never did please me
    so why did I bother? it's in me maybe
    I wont do it no more...I'll just be me
    I wont shed a tear for those who don't care
    I wont laugh with idiots, who hurt me
    I'll be my own woman, I wont be pushed
    the anger is slowly seeping away
    as happiness flows in my heart, content
    how wonderful that feels to be who I am.

    Hello and welome :wave:
    Comming back to "SELF" is the first and best step you can make. All happiness lies and starts inside...not out.
    I like your style...

    thanks

    thanks guys. I'm not very good at making poems, but I still like to write some.

    It's somtimes hard to love yourself for who you are. It's always easy to find flaws. Now I'm trying to look for good things about me. I'm glad I realized that I can't please everyone. The only person I can please is myself.

    I understand every word that you have written. I feel that way myself. Its a fight that you have to be willing to take on, at least that's my view of it. I appreciate this one.
