SHE

I want to be her,
The one who doesn’t have any insecurities.

She, who never doubts what she does nor says,
Who has strength to show guts.

Carry through, from start to finish, what she believes in.
Without a guilty voice inside her mind, telling her she is wrong.

I need to accept, that my inner war and greatest fight
Is indeed with my very own acceptance of myself,
Because she, doesn’t exist.

We all have inner doubts and fear,
But mine, can only be soothed by accepting myself as I am.

Today, tomorrow and always.

when you find out who she is let me know
I think we all feel intimidated by a person like this. Just be who YOU are and don't doubt yourself it took me years to figure that out and put it into practice and I still slip now and again

Our chat room is not only there for Thursday afternoon chat 3:30-4:30
but it is there and ready for all to use at anytime of day come often and hook up in conversation to those across the globe

Thank you, yes I believe we would all quite like to be her but she doesn't really exist I think we all feel self doubt and insecure at some time in our lives. I wish she was me.

Thank you...Teddy

Hi Teddy, I'm curious as to who she is? Yes, I don't know whether we ever get to define ourselves. Life is a journey of learning and we may think differently several times along the way. So I believe our "me" changeable.
I like your questionning verses and the title is fine.

Above, I wrote it how I think it will be neater. Some words tweaked out. To TorT, Teddy.

All else is fine, I'm glad you brought this subject of identity up. With the shutdown, lots of people are feeling insecure. It's a time for reflection. Enjoyed, Gracy

She is the "she" inside me that I wish I could be, I hope that makes sence? It's a great subject I found myself just writing away. Thank you for your wonderful review will look at what could make this better.

Thank you...Teddy

How kind of you. Indeed I love who I am but there are sometimes I wish I could be just that bit bolder.

Thank you...Teddy

her, when you write. Her when you dream, her, when you reflect that you want to be her. How much more HER do you need to be? I like you just fine, the way you are Her. ~ Geez.
