Self Confident

Rejections appear subtilely,
through sly remarks, no one else reads.
At times it crashes abruptly,
planting deep routed doubtful seeds.

Why is it so hard to be kind?
Does it feel good to pass on strife?
Can open eyes have hearts so blind?
Do peoples grief fulfill dull lives?

Rejection murders confidence,
eliminates hopes and condemns,
a gift of great incompetence,
afraid opinions may contend.

How do poor feelings rule strong minds?
Why are wrongs kept while good vibes hide?
Can negative thoughts be assigned?
Do fears derive from deep inside?

Rejections hurt then gain control,
most often they are self imposed,
profound reflections from the soul,
healed once exposed, so they are shown.

Can insecurities find cures?
If intentions are clearly pure?
Will self expressions rest secure?
So inner whispers reassure.

  1. Beautifully worded and many questions to ponder. I really like this piece, Grace. I particularly like the lines, ‘How do poor feelings rule strong minds? Why are wrongs kept while good vibes hide?’ Thanks for sharing x

  2. So beautifully expressed that it makes my momma-bear want to go into defense mode!
    This line is so very true, β€œWhy are wrongs kept while good vibes hide?” Why is it that the negatives sink deep and take root, while compliments and positives are brushed aside and fade quickly?
    Wonderfully written, Grace!

  3. “Rejections appear subtilely,
    through sly remarks, no one else reads.
    At times it crashes abruptly,

    This 1st verse says it all for me Grace! πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸ‘ People don’t realise how much of a negative effect sly; snide remarks can have on a person over the course of time. Well written! πŸ‘πŸ‘

  4. Beautiful πŸ’œ well described.

    I’ve learnt and am still learning to be confident of myself even in times of weakness and strength. The world is ready to pull you down always, be determined to rise always.

  5. Many people get disappointed and start believing themselves worthless after getting failure and rejection. Your poem will definitely show light in the darkness of their mind.

  6. These lines are so true-
    Rejections murder confidence, and
    Can open eyes have hearts so blind?
    But
    Inner whispers reassure…
    give light and hopes.
    Beautifully written, Grace
