I was a quiet and lonely kid, with a very low self esteem

My friends went out and lived their lives, while I lived in a day dream


Too afraid to do much else, I waited for support

I’d go and do with friends on side, without, I’d go back to thought


Too long spent in self judgement, self analysis and guilt

How can I live when my brain don’t stop, tearing down what God has built


So I’m treating myself by being nice, kind, loving and self-aware

I don’t give a shit what others think, ‘Cause for this temple I must care


I’ve spent my whole life putting me down, not seeing just who I am

Never allowing myself to achieve, but now I’m saying, “I can!”


I don’t expect to be perfect, I’m only human after all

I’m going to try, and believe that God, will catch me when I fall


I wrote this poem at the beginning of 2008.
