Proud to be Me

483 71 36

I'm sorry if I talk too much,
Or maybe I don't say enough
Sometimes I am out of control,
Sometimes I'm secretive, or so I'm told

I'm sorry if I seem like nothing to you,
Boring, uninteresting, not out of the blue
When everything around me is a burning fire,
I'm nothing but an ember waiting to be sired

I'm not a showstopper, with a popular clique,
I'm not a world-class chef ready to be critiqued
But one thing I am and I'm most proud to be,
Is a confident and beautiful version of me.


We are the most beautiful when we are ourselves.

I can say this to myself over and over again, but still, there's always that one flicker of doubt that creeps in every time.

What if they don't like me?
What if they judge me?
What if I don't fit in?

A piece of advice: DON'T fit in. Stand up, speak out. Show the world who you are. Because you are beautiful and amazing no matter what you do and who you want to be. Don't ever hide your true colors in order to blend in. Because your radiant shades are what make this world a masterpiece.
