Poems and Poetry: Self-Reliance

Updated on April 9, 2014


Deeper and deeper into

A hole you crawled

Longing for a life that

No longer existed.

Instead of living with your

Feebleness, you seek to

Fasten on some person’s


If no one is willing to be

Burdened by you, ill-treated,

Neglected and miserable you feel.

Life for you must a festival be

Else a dungeon the world becomes.

You must be admired

You must be flattered

Else life is a bore.

No matter what trouble you’re in

You can get yourself out of it

You just work hard, set your mind

You’ve got such a good mind so

The landscape of your mind

You must reshape in order to

Stand on your own God-given feet
