This Equation Of Me.

Confident, enough
in myself
with friends I trust
and strangers –
it’s believing
that I contain
something positive to contribute.

To feel at ease
with this me, with
what’s inside
is another matter altogether.
The value of myself, my
comfortableness and
my self-worth, are
other elements
of
the total me,
the
sum
of all the parts.

Before I doubted
myself –
I trusted
this, whole, me.
It was simple
and easy
Until,
I started believing
criticism from others.
It became emotional
and messy.
Not feeling accepted,
not feeling respected,
by others, and
No-one else was there
to put me straight.

It’s taking quite some time
to turn around
ways of thinking
ways of feeling, and
ways of
imagining
me
To understand
just where I am, and
to realise where I was
before.

The power you hold
in the
Creativity
of your mind
to Believe in you
and, to
Create you,
This is magical.
