Can you tell me how I am supposed to have any?
Or what confidence even is?
No longer do I have any.
For the longest time I never really did.  
I was working on getting some.  
Doing really good too.  
Every day it was boosting a little bit.
Now it is down to nothing again, thanks to my mom.
Confidence needs to be nurtured, not shot down by others. 
Even though she is the one who should bring me up when I am down, my mom always 
seems to be the one bringing me down.

    Don't let others bring you down. We all struggle with this from time to time. You are not alone. Heartfelt poem. Keep on writing! Karen

    Very Good Acrostic Roxanne. Think the two of you need to have a sitdown and talk this out. Love, Carol
