This goes out to all those people who have ever mocked, underestimated or discouraged me or others in order to make themselves feel better
You’re insecure and desperate to hide
Those crippling emotions that fester inside
And so you choose to mock and deride
To detract attention and puff out your pride
You never learned that kindness is best
Because the world put you to the test
Because you don’t like the real you
You try to create this person anew
If only to your essence you could be true
Others would love you for what you do
But before others love you
You must love yourself
For the sake of your happiness and of your health
Sending you love on this Sunday afternoon
May feelings of acceptance fill your room
And give you the courage to be yourself soon.
Very powerful, my friend.
Thank you, Mikelle!
