Confidence

April 14, 2015

Is confidence a choice?
A conscious decision to silence
The voices that run rampant,
Party with a penchant,
Taking much more than their share.

Is taking the staircase
All I need to do
To escape this self-despair?
Can I climb out from this basement
That knows no sunlight
If only I’m wise and brave enough to realize:
There is still a place where the sun shines.

I think that maybe – just maybe – confidence is but a choice,
A conscious decision to silence my inner critic’s voice.

Perfection

November 28, 2011

I’ve been awaiting my own perfection
But I’ve been seeking the wrong directions
It’s time to relinquish these controls
Forgo all that holds
Me back from all I am
And could be.
