To the ones who made me doubt myself

By Abel Udoekene

I don’t need your approval, that’s enough,
I don’t need your validation, don’t school me
I don’t need your excuses, it won’t buy me love
I don’t need your pity, thank you so much.

You made me feel inferior,
You made me feel worthless,
You made me feel ugly,
You made me feel like I don’t deserve love,
Thank you, you are the reason I’m still standing.

Trying to please you would have killed me
the truth is, I’m not perfect
I’ve allow my insecurity to make me a fool,
I’ve become a shame just to make you happy,
I’ve ignored the scars that shape me
Just to be a good person in your eyes.

Yes, It’s easy for you to doubt me,
Mock me,
blame me,
hate me,
But, you can’t stop my shine,
For tomorrow my story will light up the World.
