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.

Awww, thank you (:
I think it's amazing how that one special person can bring a whole new perspective on how you look at yourself and life. I guess knowing someone likes you for who you are can bring a new found confidence so to speak. Nicely done :)

Very nice job :) many people can relate to feeling like this. Favorite part:
I was left kind of broken,
My reflection hated me,
But now the love of my life,
Is beginning to set me free.

Nice job :)

No problem :)
Don't continue to fall into the trap that beauty comes from appearance! One does not have to be skinny to be pretty! And, true beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Your new love sounds like a very wise person who is giving you the confidence you need to be yourself!
Hold onto that!! Each person is unique and beautiful in their own way!!

Aww, thank you so much(: I'll keep that in mind.
I like the strong ending. People make fun of how others look when it doesn't even matter whats on the outside, because that doesn't make a person who they are. But everyone is beautiful in their own way. Good write.

You will always be perfectly you whether anyone else sees it or not. I liked the concept here but I don't completely agree with the message. You don't find fulfillment or acceptance through anyone else. You are you and physically, from your avatar, that is certainly more than enough.

Thank you, DrD, I understand what you mean. Yes, being me is enough, but in my head, I'm still not c.. read more
I think that starbucks is overpriced. Their beverages aren't that great either. I love you baby, nonetheless. Don't be someone else you're not. Because I won't love you then. Just stay as you are and stay as the beautiful thorny rose that you are. Affections are illegitimate worry about who you want to be and who you are. Society is superficial so don't believe in it. The only thing you are sure of is that you yourself is real. So believe in that. Believe that the marshmallows will save your soul.

How beautiful and true. I believe this is a message that every one should hear. We should all be able to feel that love and acceptance of ourselves and who we are. Thanks for sharing.
