Learning who

Learning to be
Can be hard
Life teaches us early who we are
Can make us doubt cause lasting scars.

If we focus on others judgements
The negatives can stunt our circumference
Told you are no good at that,
Are ugly stupid that’s a trap.

Learning to be the person, that fulfills their own potential,
Can be hard, if we believe we can’t be successful,
We are duff at sums, we have no charm,
We can’t attract a mate, communication causes alarm.

Living with the mantra of negativity,
Becomes a self fulfilling prophecy,
Yet each of us in unique,
Why do we have to follow the herd,or be the freak?

Learning to be, can be hard,
Some never manage, they keep their marked card,
Others start to realise, they like their self,
Gain confidence, count their strengths, grab life itself.

Learning to be, is easy for some,
They have self love and confidence from day one,
Get positive feedback, grab the day,
Breeze through life, like through a holiday.

From where ever we start,
It’s important to be, all you want to be,
Start with caring for you, seeing the good,
Celebrate your achievements, search out the dead wood.

Each of us is unique, and deserves to live life to the full,
Aware of who they are, shining bright never dull.

Version 2
Learning to be
Can be hard
Life teaches us early who we are
Can make us doubt cause lasting scars.

Learning to be, is easy for some
With self-love and confidence from day one
Positive feedback helps them grab the day
Breeze through life like a holiday.

Learning to fulfill one’s own potential
Is hard if we think we can’t be successful
That we are duff at sums have no charm
Can’t attract a mate, can cause lasting harm.

If we focus on others judgements
Negatives can stunt adjustments
When told ‘You are no good’ recap
‘You are ugly, stupid!’ that’s a trap.

Living with a mantra of negativity
Becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy
Yet each of us is unique,
Why follow the herd,feel a freak?
