Confidence- A Poem

Confidence

Confidence

Why must you disappear on me so quick?

As soon as you come, you leave

The air grows dreary and thick

And I cannot breathe.

Confidence

Why do you make me feel so strong

That I can face anything

Then you abandon me, things go wrong

And I cannot do a thing.

Confidence

Without you here everything about me isn't right,

There is nothing that I can think of that I like.

No fortitude, no greatness, nothing in sight

I can't even put up a fight.

Confidence

Please come back to me

For I can lift my head up high again

And people can finally see

Their true friend.

What This Poem Is About

Everyday is a constant battle for me and many people out there who have a mental illness. For me confidence can be there but just as quickly as it comes it will disappear and there will be nothing about myself that I will like. Within this poem I wrote to confidence as if it is a person, begging for it come back to me. I think many people wish that they had confidence in themselves. You are not alone, nobody ever is.

This is a great hub! I struggle all of the time with confidence problems. One day I will feel like I can conquer the world but then the fear comes and I realize that I am not whole. Thank you for sharing. voted up.
