Knowing yourself is very important. When I first wrote this poem I surprised myself with my own thoughts. I wasn't hiding what I felt anymore. Everybody is special whether or not they believe it. This is for everyone that doesn't believe they are beautiful.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life

Standing Alone
I can see the flower upon which my life grows, blooming into a rose.

See the hope and courage in the strength of the petals.
As long as I am, I will be.
The flower will never wilt or die.
As my life grows back, I shall become strong.
I shall become only dependent on one.
That one will be me.
I will rise with my petals high.
My life as a flower will bloom and prosper as I grow.
I may not be the pick of the patch, but I am just as beautiful as the rest.

I will stand as one, but not a lonely soul.
The tears will be far from my smile.
