Yourself (Poem)

You tell yourself, “No one cares,”

Does that mean that you don’t care about yourself?

You can be the one person that cares,

Why can’t you focus on learning to care about yourself?

Why are focusing on finding someone else who cares?

 

Perhaps you’ll find someone who cares when you learn to care about yourself,

So start to believe that you are an important person,

Believe that you deserve to love yourself,

Don’t believe that you aren’t important if someone else doesn’t make you feel like an important person,

Your own thinking is what determines if you deserve the put-downs that you are giving yourself.

 

Understanding Me (Poem)

There’s sadness within me,

Why do I feel sad?

What’s going on with me?

I don’t know why I’m sad,

I need to understand me.

 

I feel anger within me,

Why am I angry?

What’s going on with me?

I don’t know why I’m angry,

I need to understand me.

 

I don’t always know why I feel the way I do,

Yet I take time to try to understand my feelings,

I work to figure out why I feel the way I do,

I spend time alone with my feelings,

Understanding my feelings is what I feel I must do.

 

You see there’s nothing wrong with trying to understand yourself,

Answers can come when we try to understand ourselves,

Understanding yourself is also part of loving yourself,

Sadly, we focus more on understanding others yet don’t focus on understanding ourselves,

The question is, “Who would understand you if you don’t try to understand yourself?”

 

Hero Clothes (Poem)

I should put on confident clothes,

I should say, “I can do this,”

Oh, I wish I could feel calm with clothes,

I wish I actually believed that I can do this,

Perhaps I should wear some hero clothes.

 

I think the doctor might look at me weird,

The doctor might understand if I say “I’m wearing this because I’m scared,”

Yet the check-up results won’t change because I look weird,

The unknown is what has me scared,

I guess it might be good to get temporarily distracted by looking weird.

 

You see I’m my own hero,

Fighting any type of illness is what makes anyone a hero,

Yet is never easy for any hero,

There are obstacles for a hero,

Most of all, some heroes were once a scared hero.

Cheat (Poem)

You cheat and cheat,

I should feel sorry for you for not knowing how to love,

You must be so insecure if you only know how to cheat,

Sorry but I don’t feel bad for ANYONE who cheats just because they don’t know how to love,

No one deserves a cheat.

 

You cheat on the one that truly loves you,

The one that’s getting cheating on is becoming insecure just like you,

Insecurity is the result of anyone who loves you,

You only care about you,

No one leaves unhurt when they get involved with you.

 

So I say, “Get some therapy for your cheating ways,”

Perhaps you’ll stop feeling so empty inside,

Perhaps you’ll encounter someone who might not get hurt because of your cheating ways,

Perhaps that person won’t end up feeling empty inside,

Too bad you enjoy your cheating ways.

The Best (Poem)

You thought you were the best,

You dumped me because you wanted better,

I believed that you were the best,

I thought I was unlovable when you went to seek for better,

The fact that you made me feel unlovable should’ve made me see that you weren’t the best.

 

Yes, it was silly of me to believe that you were the best,

You cheated and mistreated me,

I should’ve said, “I’m the best. You aren’t the best,”

I’m the one who remained faithful no matter what you did to me,

That is one of the many reasons why I’m the best.

 

Do you know how hard it is not to want revenge?

I wanted to hurt you like you hurt me,

Yet I didn’t get my revenge,

Yes, I’m the best because I prayed instead of finding a way to hurt you like you hurt me,

Now I’m living guilt-free because I didn’t seek my revenge.

 

Disguise (Poem)

An assumption that he was kind-hearted,

Never would’ve guessed the truth from the first meeting,

His visual said he was kind-hearted,

Would’ve immediately walked away if I could’ve seen the truth in the first meeting,

It’s sad that it can be so easy to pretend to be kind-hearted.

 

His words weren’t harmful when we first met,

I wanted to believe that he was a good person,

He only used nice words when we first met,

Sadly a bad person knows how to pretend to be a good person,

I would’ve walked away if I had known the truth when we first met.

 

It would’ve been great if had know how to see through the disguise,

Yet I didn’t know,

I let myself get fooled by the disguise,

Now I know,

I learned that this world has so many people who wear a disguise.

Best For Me (Poem)

Hello,

We met,

Hello,

Is it good that we met?

Should it be a goodbye instead of a hello?

 

I wish we don’t meet if you aren’t good for me,

Yet destiny is the one that brings us to each others life,

Let’s no talk for long if you aren’t good for me,

I’m not interested in welcoming anyone who isn’t good for my life,

Sorry but my life is all about me.

 

I don’t wish to give a lot of time to anyone who wants to hurt me,

Having a hard life doesn’t mean I’ll let you hurt me,

I’ll wish you a better life as I distance you from me,

Sorry, but I got to choose what’s best for me,

Good people with good intentions are the only people who are best for me.
