I Can Finally Be Me

I Can Finally Be Me

A Poem by Amandaaa Caroline (:
"

Just some thoughts expressed in poetry.. This was kinda my thinking process, I was thinking about how I'm not good enough, but then I realized I'm getting better. Well, I hope you enjoy (:

"
I'm sorry I can't be perfect,
Extremely skinny and pretty,
That's what people want,
But it's quite hard to achieve.

I've always struggled with,
Loving myself, how I look,
So many insults and rumors,
My confidence, they took.

I was left kind of broken,
My reflection hated me,
But now the love of my life,
Is beginning to set me free.

I've gotten a little more confident.
In myself, I've begun to believe,
I've stood tall against the insults,
And now I can finally be me.

Being you is being free, from any negativity.. It will always come your way, try to keep you dull and grey.. but Amanda you know you're brighter than a rainbow.. so shine your true colors girl, be vibrant, cause Amanda you add color to this darkened world.

"my reflection hated me" That line cuts real deep. we are our greatest critics; it's important that we discover ourselves so we don't live other people's versions of our lives. I'm glad you've discovered yourself.. Excellent poem Amanda.. :)

As far as I'm concerned, you are perfect. By choosing to be yourself and loving who you are, you're perfect, because you are you. My daddy always used to say "You have to be yourself, because everyone else is already taken." I know that's not originally his, well I think a lot of his quotes aren't originally his, but it's got a lot of meaning and I think it's a great idea to live by. a wonderful poem :)

Thanks so much Icelanna (:
it's really good! i assume this may be a personal struggle you had; if so, always know people love you for you and anything that comes along. this poem is beautiful, always have faith in yourself and don't change yourself for what others want. it's you; it should be who you are, you have to live life the way you want. (:

I loved your write! seriously, its the media which has hyped everything,increased the expectations.We all struggle to reach perfection advertised by the media.

All you need is to be yourself and let the right one in.You've beautifully conveyed this through your poem.Thanks for sharing.
