I Believe in Me

A Poem About Moving On and Moving Up

You can't keep me down

I'm no longer your clown

Your words are like weapons

But my faith is a shield

Your knife doesn't cut all that deep


Anxiety is not insecurity

Your words reflect your own impurity

I am calm within myself

I am in control of my own well-being

Your words no longer hurt me


I was wounded, now I'm healed

Karma has our fates concealed

Some people dwell on the past

I've let it go and moved on

My future is bright and amazing


I believe in me

Something others failed to see

I am as strong as an ancient oak

I weather the storms of life

And I love myself more for it.
