Fay Slimm.

ESTEEM.

 

 

Esteem.

 

Joy in being
~ ~ ~ ~ is not understood
until what is seen

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ in the heart

is departure
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ from need.

 

Self is always
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ wholly enough
and to succeed

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ is to know

that we alone

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ can beat defeat.

 

Life may rain hurt
~ ~ ~ ~ yet we can learn 
to dance and stay dry

- - - - - ~ ~ ~ ~ if covered

with courage

~ ~ ~ ~ ~  of self-esteem.

    filled like a bloomin garden... full of beautiful truisms one only need look... Neville

    • Fay Slimm.

      Most grateful dear Neville for your read and assessment of the title's treatment - - pleased too that you dubbed the suggestions raised to gain success as "truisms" - - - my thanks for such an encouraging review

        pleasure & true ..

        Your wonderful first verse here says it all for me.

          So pleased you liked the points made in that first stanza D A - your read and comment warms my heart.

        • Suresh

          There's a lot said, and you said it best.

          • Fay Slimm.

            How very kind of you to so honour my writing Suresh. Glad too that you dropped by and read the piece on Esteem.
