Belief/ Me, My Thoughts, and the World

Belief/ Me, My Thoughts, and the World

A Poem by De'Andre
"

"Believe in yourself"

"

Dreaming about a life filled with all that I enjoy

I was lost out at sea before I even could deploy

I jumped the gun, still lost the race, could have come in third

I hit the ground, screamed for helped, but wasn't even heard

 

I wished for things I knew I couldn't have

The light was green but I got stuck in traffic on the Ave.

Hoped that one day love would find me

Cupid shot and missed, I guess he couldn't see

 

I dreamt for success, think I can make it, I know all my odds

The haters don't think so, I''m stuck on the edge of their rods

But I keep believing despite all they say to me

I know what I got, I know what I'll be

 

I look for a future, grasp all that is near

But they say I have no future, which  just isn't fair

I enjoy all that I dream; the good and the bad

So who are they to tell me about what I've never had

 

I get who I am, but I shout out " I need more!"

I hear " You won't get it" and my heart hits the floor

They say I'm destined to fail but say it aint so

I make a move toward the future, dreaming wherever I go

At some points I didn't think the poem flowed very well and I found it hard to read in a fluid movement, however, despite a few grammatical errors I found this poem touching and could feel the powerful feelings within the words.
Very good - I did enjoy it!! ;) xx

This poem was inspiring, I think what you're trying to say is that, you're trying to have courage and you're trying to stand up even if the things around you let you down, am i right? Very inspiring.

You can't allow the doom-sayers in the way of your life. Better to leave them in the dust. I like this poem. Wisdom in your words. Can't allow dreams to fade away. Last line is true and powerful words. Must always move forward. A outstanding poem.
