I Believe In Me...

I have been down the deepest pit,
Without any thoughts, I have had to sit,
I have been stranded in darkness black,
In this life of mine, I have often lost track.

In the deepest of mire, I have been stuck,
I have tried a lot in vain, without any luck,
I have had many a curse, thrown at me,
Looked for fair fortune, yet failed to see.

I have had to sell, many a small dream,
Lost many a trust, that I could not redeem,
Have lost in love, and I have felt that pain,
I have seen someone else, in a mirror pane.

Yet I am here now, I have survived it all,
Come through life, never forgetting the fall,
Only because I had with me, someone to lean,
Someone who believed in what I once had been.

That someone is me; I never gave up in life,
Held my head high, and smiled through my strife,
When people around, gave up all the hope,
I fought through it all, learnt with them to cope.

I listened, to what my heart had to say,
I followed what I thought true, to this very day,
I dared to do, what they thought I never could,
I came out on top, because I believed I would.

I dared to dream, and live that dream true,
I held on to prayers, from loving people few,
Inspiration from my heart, I did then conceive,
Anything is possible, but only if you believe.


250 Words. Inspired by the picture itself.
