    I once accepted all
    Never denied my quality
    Never questioned my sight
    I was never wrong
    Didnt once doubt in my mind
    That how i acted was right
    And when sh1t went wrong in my life
    It was always other people
    someone else fu*ki*g with me
    Secret saboteurs damaging my world
    Persistant that I should fail

    One day I looked at myself honestly
    In the mirror
    One day I spoke
    And truly listened to myself free of bias
    One day I read the words of histories true intellectuals
    And measured my comprehension
    Realization came that
    I wasn't as good looking, right, or as smart as i had thought ​

    A great balance is to realize that we don't know it all, but also value the things about ourselves that do shine. I hear what your saying poet.

    Wow, if more of us would look at ourselves like that in the mirror (just once in a while)
    it takes courage to really look
    so what does that say about you....
    i believe your reflection will smile back one day
    nice work

    :heart: moham
