I Believe In Me

I Believe In Me

A little history lesson about your humble scribe
Just in case there are some curious within this tribe
I’ve had the chance to do a number of exciting things
In TV, radio, and film and with some folks that sing

I have created artwork and I’ve written a few books
And none of it was thanks to my “keen wit” or my “good looks”
Not one opportunity was handed off to me
Nothing once was served on platter or did come easy

Everything that I have done was not because someone
Said “I have faith in you,” no sir, those kudos I’ve had none
No one ever looked me in the eye and said with truth:
“I believe in you” not as an older man or youth

Every single thing that I’ve accomplished was because
I did believe in myself, what I would be, what I was
I did believe in myself even when others would scoff
I did believe in myself when others would say “back off”

I did believe when they said “Quit” or “what a waste of time”
I did believe when they warned that I wouldn’t make a dime
I did believe when they insulted and they all poked fun
And looking back, I realize that I’m the only one

That ever needed faith in me ‘cause waiting for their praise
Is just a futile effort that will only waste your days
So when you do set out to do that thing you’d love to do
Don’t you dare look elsewhere for their faith to carry you

Either it does not exist or will not be sufficient
You must believe in  yourself if you hope to be efficient
You must say “I believe in me” and not wait for their seal
Only when you believe in yourself will dreams be real

    Yes, Miro, superb words of wisdom! “Either it does not exist or will not be sufficient
    You must believe in yourself if you hope to be efficient” There’s nothing more to say, these lines say it all! 🙂

    This is another excellent post Miro. It inspires, It counsels, rebukes, comforts and provokes one’s thought. Thanks so much for sharing. God blesses.
