Author: Pamela O'Brien


For the first time in my life,
I do not want a serious relationship with anybody,
Because the love I have for myself is suddenly enough to keep me going.
And thats nice.

For the first time in my life,
I am being more daring and outgoing with those who surround me,
Because the confidence I have been lacking is suddenly shining through.
And its nice.

And for the first time in my life,
I am overwhelmed with a feeling of content,
even though I am not exactly where I want to be,
And its nice.

You know....

Even though its hard to tell through typing on a screen, I really appreciate the time you always take to commenton my poems - even if its just to say you liked it. Motivates me to keep writing when I know somebody out there reads them faithfully. And you know I do the same with yours :o)

Love yourself

It is important to love yourself, to give yourself confidence, but is sometimes hard to do. Glad you have found you can
