Believe in yourself


Believe in yourself
not in the hopes, 
the dreams
of someone else. 

The shadow of you
is always with you. 
Not with the people
who walk beside you. 

Some people stay, 
some walk away. 
Some may block your path, 
some will help you find your way. 

And then, in time, 
with the help of those
who stay true to you, 
you really start to believe in you.
