A Flower- Beautiful or Thorny?

Updated on November 24, 2019

A Flower- Beautiful or Thorny?

Sometimes, you will lose,

And yourself you will accuse.

A 'loser' 'worthless', yourself you will label,

And become harsh and no longer affable.

Ruin would be the confidence that was built.

Pride would be replaced by shame and guilt.

Confidence and might,

Would be replaced by fear, doubt and contrite.

An event of failure will cause grief.

"I am a failure" will be your belief.

A loser yourself you will call,

And believe that you will now always fall.

To move ahead you will lose vigour and gallant.

And will feel hesitant.

To avoid experiencing similar pain,

From moving ahead, yourself you will refrain.

You would be reminded of the roads that were rough.

This would dissuade you and to walk ahead, you will rebuff.

That's when for yourself you become a curse,

That's when yourself you hate and averse.

Into an enemy turns a mate.

Love is replaced by animosity and irate.

Your mirror cries when you are in tears,

And smiles, when you are in a mood of joy and cheer.

So how can you stop yourself from moving ahead on the path of success?

How can yourself you curse and not bless?

By yourself, how can you be snubbed?

And from moving ahead towards your goal, yourself how can you curb?

On yourself never be hard,

Treat yourself always with love and regard.

With your Self-love, confidence and optimism, you can make yourself reach the pinnacle.

And with your self-doubt, fear and animosity, you can make yourself a debacle.

You are the cause,

For your gain and loss.

You can call yourself a beautiful flower and always flourish and blossom.

You can label yourself Thorny and live a life that's perilous and gruesome.

With yourself you can feel safe and live a life like an intrepid.

And you can even fear yourself and from this fearful world, try to get rid.

So, be careful when yourself you define.

Coz depending on the labels that to yourself you give, your destiny is destined.
