Self Help Books

I used to just watch other people doing things

I didn't have the confidence it took

But now i feel i can do a lot more

After reading my self help book.


I wasn't aware when i started

About the feelings it could bring

Now there are sometimes

I feel i can do almost anything.


But not too long ago

I would have been a bit of a cynic

Now i've really got to thinking

That there's something in it.


Now if someone asks me

What kind of books i like the best

There's so many to choose from

Such as helping with confidence or stress.


People feel they can do things

If they've got great bodies or looks

But i like getting into my head

And getting it from my self help books.

      Hi Nell, Thanks for reading and commenting on this.

      Yes i know i read this poem again and it sounds more like a miracle cure than a book the way i described it. Michael.
