I wrote this poem some time ago based on this quote. It seems particularly relevant to me at the moment as I gear up for exams and assignments.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
I know that I have a bit of a complex
It is probably because I am shy
I worry that people think I am standoffish
Because I stand silently by
At many a social occasion
When everyone’s chatting away
I am desperately trying
To think of something to say
I don’t live in a fancy residence
I don’t drive the trendiest car
I am not a brilliant genius
I feel that I am below par
But wait, who says I’m not worth it?
It is me that causes myself grief
I need to forget about others
And work on my own self-belief!
