Forgot I Could Shine

by Jesse James Doty



Been working on me for so long,
forgot I could shine.
Didn't notice till I saw my reflection
in smiling eyes that were kind.

Now my confidence is growing
with the idea that it's showing
They are happy to see me,
and the joyous reason's mine.

Although I still have marathons to run,
I credit myself for the hard work I've done.
It didn't come easy,
It didn't come fast,
But now I'm holding my head up at last.

Although it's rocky at times, things are looking up for me.

Thanks for reading my poem.
