For those who think they are a nobody...YOU are SOMEBODY!

This is something I wrote ages ago to combat those thoughts and people who try and make you feel less than yourself when in all actuality you are everything!

I am Somebody

I am somebody

I am everything you said I never was

I became what you said I couldn't do

Every word you tried to use against me

Was fire for me to go and do great things

I've proved you wrong

With little or no help from you

Now what more words?

More hurtful beatings?

More bruises more blood more suffering ???

I made it then I can make it now

And do even greater things

You never tell me your proud

And when you do its once in a blue moon

But you can tell me how dumb I am or how I won't be anything

But never a true encouraging word

I overcame once and I can do it again

You knock me down and I got up

I became more than what you ever expected

And still it isn't good enough for your perfect world

I am not you!

I am not the people who hurt you!!

So stop taking it out on me!

Encourage me to do greater things than you

Instead of..."your whole life you've done nothing but things to spite me"

That's not encouraging

That's not positive

That's not building me up

Its tearing me down

You may tear me down, but I will do even greater things

Because all things are possible with my FATHER

The one who stuck with me and walked with me to the point I am today

I am somebody and will be somebody 'cause my FATHER says I am somebody

We should live our lives on our terms. Each is different with unique talents. I have seen hurtful words hurled especially at children here in Asia. Thanks for sharing - siva

Excellent thoughts. In our daily lives, we always criticize people when they do something wrong but rarely praise them when they do something good. That is the way it is.
