Be Strong

Don’t care about what others think,
Until when my ego falls near the brink.
A lot of this bothers me,
Yet it all helps to see.
My flaws are now so clear,
Only my persona holds fear.
I can’t forget those memories,
I can’t free myself from these miseries.

Don’t care about what others say,
Until when their words catch up to me someday.
A lot of this brings me down,
Yet helps to be on the ground.
My realization is so present,
Only my perception holds resentment.
I can’t forget words told,
I can’t leave behind my innermost mold.

Don’t care about what others feel,
Until when I finally see it’s all real.
A lot of this quells me,
Yet it brings out a new way to be.
My resilience does exist,
Only my feelings persist.
I can’t forget these lessons,
I can’t forsake the inner child lost in ignorance.

Don’t care about what others 
Think, say, or feel about you.
Some of it all becomes pain,
But most of it brings strengthening gain.
Be sensitive and steady, like a tree,
For you are destined to grow.
You’ll never truly from the beginning know
Who you deep down want to be.

Don’t care about what others want you to be,
Until when both you and them agree.
A lot of people in life change,
Yet it is the way destiny is arranged.
Your inner strength’s like a tree,
Only time holds the key.
You can make it through,
You can always be you.

Don’t care about what others tell you,
Until when everyone can see what’s true.
A lot of time is what we need,
Yet it is all conditions we shall heed.
You’ll take thoughts, words, feelings to heart,
Only your mask falls apart.
You can grow from this seed in such ground,
You can gain more inner strength newfound.
