Self Image's Peril

Our faults canít be the very worst;
Itís harmful just to say it.
Although it may our bubble burst,
Letís not overplay it.

The positives are plainly there,
If we donít disguise them.
So donít reduce to disrepair,
By choosing to despise them.

Although you may evaluate
What othersí thoughts reflect
Reading minds will not facilitate
To lift your self respect.

If you think you may peer forth
Each tragedy foreseeing,
It will not increase your worth,
Contrary, life debris-ing.

Again to say, ďThe very worstĒ
Describes my lifeónot fair.
Almost inviting to be cursed,
At least in disrepair.
