The best gift is you!

Someone might be more beautiful than you 
Someone might be richer than you
Someone might be more popular than you
Someone might be more accomplished than you
Someone might be smarter than you
Someone might be more efficient than you
Someone might be more successful than you
Someone might be wiser than you
These realizations might eat your heart out
But don't let the green-eyed monster in
Fight against it with all your might
You are special
Unique in your own way
There's no one else who can take your place.
Don't fall victim to comparisons!
It makes no sense to compare
your beginning to someone else's middle
Or even the end.
You are special
Unique in your own way
Love yourself a little more every day
Believe in yourself a little more every day
Trust in yourself a little more every day
Have a little faith in yourself
Boost your self-confidence
Don't let anyone pull you down
The best gift is you!
When you truly believe in yourself,
Anything is possible, and,
The world is yours for the taking!

This poem was written in response to Sadje’s What Do You See prompt #87. Thank you, Sadje for hosting this challenge. The challenge is to use the picture prompt as inspiration to compose an original story, poem, or a caption.

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a wall decorated by splashes of colors. There are outlined sketches of two hands on the wall. Above the decorations, the words β€œ The best gift is you” are written. A woman can be seen walking a baby in a stroller in the front.

      1. This is different from invisiblemind.wordpress.com, Diyasha. Your user name is invisible mind. But your site address is fruitsindustry.wordpress.com

        That’s why they showed that the site doesn’t exist. You might want to change the link on your Gravitar profile too. And when someone asks for the link, you can tell them it is
        fruitsindustry.wordpress.com. Then they won’t have any trouble finding the site πŸ˜ƒ
