Our Deepest Fear Finally Conquered

Some say our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate

But to others we are.

Our fears of being rejected cause us to hide who we truly are,

But a lot of people can't seem to 

Understand why we fear what we fear.

All these bullies in school make our self-esteem

lower and lower each day,

until we're fed up 

and are severely depressed

or no longer alive.

Some fear that if they display who they really are

they will lose their social status and be a..... 


As long as we put on a front we're accepted by all.

People think it's stupid for some occupations their "friends"

want to pursue,

Well, I don't give a damn about what people think,

I'm going to be a salon owner

and there's nothing you can do about it.

I love helping people who feel down about their appearance.

I'll be the self-esteem booster for 

All depressed souls that need a little.....


My motto is "LET YOUR HATERS BE YOUR ELEVATORS" to your own success.

And in the future when you look back to see how you've changed,

you will see the BULLIERS  go from riches to rags and the  BULLIED go from rags to riches.

Don't let anybody tell you that you can't do something.

Be you, and be proud to be you!
