Never Forget

Written by: Nefretiti Morant

Never Forget

I am powerful, 
I am creative, 
I am grateful to be here. 
Even if I’m not so beautiful to look at 
my spirit is irresistible and deserving of love in God’s eyes  
I may be silly and not think things through all the time
But I have a big heart and a mind that has the ability to flower flaws 
into interesting quirks 

It is in naivety that we look to others and material things for self-assurance
We are powerful, 
blessed and beautiful enough to remedy the messes we create 
with infinite faith in God 

I am made in his likeness 
and that makes me awesome  
I am not perfect 
and yes I have some things in my past that I am not proud of  
But who doesn't  
I am strong enough to not let those things define me 
I will blaze through, smiling 
as I overcome any and every obstacle in my path  

I have already begun to make positive changes in my life  
Not even the sky is my limit  
I will hold my head high, 
solidifying to myself and everyone who ever doubted 
that I am smart, 
beautiful 
and worth all things wonderful in life
