You Are Who You Are long poem

Don’t feel insecure ‘cuz
If someone’s gonna love
You they’re gonna love
You for who you are
Don’t you know it’s not
What’s in the mirror but
What’s in the heart so
Dry your tears and let
Go of your fears stop
Tearing yourself apart
Because if someone’s
Gonna love you
They’re gonna love
You for who you are
So if your good ain’t
Good enough then maybe
They’re not good enough
For you and you’re better
Off alone than to suffer
Superficial fools
Don’t let it get you down
‘Cuz if someone’s gonna love
You they’re gonna love
You for who you are
Don’t you know it’s not
What’s in the mirror but
What’s in the heart so
Dry your tears and let
Go of your fears stop
Tearing yourself apart
Because if someone’s
Gonna love you
They’re gonna love
You for who you are
You’re only human
You ain’t got anything
To prove to nobody
Learn to love yourself
And the rest will follow
Live for today and forget
Tomorrow
Don’t lose the faith
‘Cuz if someone’s gonna love
You they’re gonna love
You for who you are
Don’t you know it’s not
What’s in the mirror but
What’s in the heart so
Dry your tears and let
Go of your fears stop
Tearing yourself apart
Because if someone’s
Gonna love you
They’re gonna love
You for who you are
That’s just the way it is
And the way it’s meant to be
Well…you are, you are
Beautiful to me baby
So dry your tears and let
Go of your fears stop
Tearing yourself apart
Because if someone’s
Gonna love you
They’re gonna love
You for who you are
Learn to love yourself
And the rest will follow
Live for today and forget
Forget tomorrow!

Bedevil Who ?

Bedevil Who ? short poem

The pulse seems tranquil and still, But they don’t have blood in it filled. Strange, the brain is at bark within. Why this uneasiness seems like an attaching shark? I do sit and endeavour to settle it down, But for
