ME

A Poem by Slender Smile/Husna Tayyab
"

I know many of you have seen this on my profile page and many others would have thought I just copied it from somewhere else although it has been derived from a collection of words. But this is MY piece...this is me.

"

 

Me
 
 
 
I fall & I pick myself up,

I lose hope yet I dream

I am lost & I find myself again,

I cry & I laugh through my tears

I despair yet I believe....

Despite my height,
insecurity,
criticism,
competition,
bad timing,
bad luck,
fear,
flaws,
failure &
opposition.........

I AM THE GLOW
of confidence
FOR WHOM THE WORLD
steps aside
I AM THE SPARKLE OF
independence
THAT TURNS HEADS WITH
every stride.

This is just wonderful. =]
It's good to see poems like this. Uplifting, motivating, passion-filled poetry! Sometimes I get tired of the depressive stuff. It's almost rare to see this subject matter anymore. It's refreshing.
I especially liked the ending
"I AM THE SPARKLE OF
independence
THAT TURNS HEADS WITH
every stride."

Usually I'm anal about captialization and grammar and all that- but your poem, the defiant manner in which it is typed fits perfectly with the point you're trying to get across! I just love it!
Thank you so much for sharing this!

Beautiful, it's what every woman around the world would love to see in themselves but can't, I love the defiant confidence and disregard for insecure emotions. Love it.

Criticize ?

Never! You have listed all the
negatives you have felt at some
low point in your life.
Those negatives will never touch
you again. Now you see your
true worth.

You sparkle with confidence as
in your poem. You are the essence
of life. Live it with head held high.

A beautiful poem written of a
gorgeous lady. Very, very special .

The last stanza.. YES, it's very colorful, powerful, pasionate, it can replace the rest of the poem easily.
Thank you!
