A self-esteem poem to tell you that even on the days you mess up, it's not so bad.

Are You Sure About This? Written by Jessica L

Today, well, I messed up completely
And I've had many days like this before
So are you sure you still want to use me
Was what I am what you were looking for
Lord, I have my issues, You know that
And my flaws stand out loud and clear
Will using me be something you regret?
Are you sure you weren't mistaken here?
I'm simple and I can't understand
A lot of things that you have done
So do I really fit into your plan
Are you sure that I'm the one?
This job seems so big for me
And I don't want to fail you again
I'm just not good enough, can't you see
I'm way to easily tempted to sin

But it's now that you reassure me
"Jess, I know this is what I want to do
I made and know you completely
And I really want to use you
I see your flaws, yes there are many
And your sin was never out of my sight
But I can take all that and use it for my glory
Through you I'll show them my wonder and might
. So don't worry, I will continue to mold and shape you
So that when the time comes you will be ready
You will do all that I've planned for you to do
And through it all, they will see Me.

A poem to remind you that you can conquer any challenge, like challenges in self-esteem


Any challenge put before you stand and face it
Any blessing waiting for you try and take it
Although almost brought tears never cry
Even if the battle seems lost never die
For if you are never killed you can’t be conquered
Although adversity is long human will is stronger

We don't have to "drift" through life any longer! 

I Am Not a Drifter Anymore. Written By JS

Drifting up and down here and there.
I don’t want to wander through life.
I need to know who I am
So I can find stability and truly understand, 
My purpose.

Family and friends they do their best.
But this is a journey I must take alone.
Although it seems scary to remove the layers I hide behind
It will be most thrilling adventure I’ve ever known.

Discovering me.
Who I’m created to be.
And how this life really works.

Understanding how to live.
The gifts I have have to give.
Would be the greatest thing on earth.

One day
I will stand up and say
I am not a drifter anymore.

Look in the Mirror today, and decide to be fearless... 

The Fearless Mirror. Written By JS

A mirror of myself and what I want be
An image of myself staring back at me.
I see all of my triumphs and every single failure when I look through my eyes.
You see a girl too afraid to stand when you look through yours.
However I’ve lived and I’ve lost.
I’ve loved and its caused 
Me to be the woman that sits before you today

A great self-esteem poem....literally

A Self-Esteem Poem. Written By Ellen Bailey

Why would you want to be someone else
When you could be better by being yourself
Why pretend to be someone you are not
When you have something they haven't got

Cheating yourself of the life you have to live
Deprives others of that only which you can give
You have much more to offer by being just you
Than walking around in someone else's shoes

Trying to live the life of another is a mistake
It is a masquerade; nothing more than a fake
Be yourself and let your qualities show through
Others will love you more for being just you

Remember that God loves you just as you are
To Him you are already a bright shining star
Family and friends will love you more too
If you spent time practicing just being you"

Rose is one of my favorite self-esteem poems because it reminds us that it is ok to be fragile and delicate, in fact it's beautiful. Every

ROSE has thorns, but that does not take away from it's beauty. 

ROSE. Written By Unkown

It is only a tiny rosebud,
A flower of God's design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
GOD opens this flower so sweetly,
When in my hands they fade and die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of God's design,
Then how can I think I have wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?

So I'll trust in Him for His leading
Each moment of every day.
I will look to him for His guidance
Each step of the pilgrim way.

The pathway that lies before me,
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.

A beautiful self-esteem poem for when you feel like you don't have anything to offer in a situation

The Young Woman Written by Patricia Ashley-Romer

Gently, He called, young friend, sit down with me here
She haltingly stepped forward, her eyes filled with fear
But, Master, she cried, I've nothing to offer you,
Many here are more gifted, I have no talents as others do
My child, He softly chided, lifting her face toward His own
You're made in the image of your mother, who sits on a throne
You're unique, and a treasure, to your Father above
To Him you are precious, He looks down on you in love
Keep yourself spotless and become an eternal bride
Remember little sister, it was for you that I died
Your body is a temple, a vessel that is pure
Remain true to your standards, you can endure
Obey my commandments, always choosing the right
Matchless daughter of God, keep walking in the light

I Will Have Courage Written by Unknown Author

Today I will have courage
To do one thing that is new
I will be kind to another
And to myself be true
Today I will remember
The blessings that are mine
I'll live the day with confidence
And for me the sun will shine

You Love Others As You Love Yourself

L-O-V-E n' Me

LOVE- means...
Life Over Valued Everytime…. No that’s not right. How About… Life Overture of Victory Everlasting. That Sounds Better. Look Out for the Violets Everyday, the beautiful things in life I tend to lookover while being too self-absorbed...Well that’s good advice.

Learning to L-O-V-E is going to be an adventure. But it is a risk I am willing to take. 

A Get R.E.A.L girl always has a vision and won't move forward without a plan- a wonderful self-esteem poem. 

Have a Vision. Written By Sylvia L. Green

Without a vision,
You are sure to die.
Know where you're going;
Then your wings soar high.

Visualize your goal
As if it were real.
Its closeness in reach,
Within you should feel.

Sight is what lifts you
Above your struggle.
Life's disappointments,
Hope helps you juggle.

Keep your end in view
As you forge ahead.
Faith directs your flight
As success is bred.

IF. Written By Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
When all are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream-and not make dreams your master
; If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”;

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings-nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run-
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And-which is more-you’ll be a Man, my son!

Secret Hideaway by Crystal Rogers

There is a place I love to go. A place no one else knows When I need to expand my mind or experience the calmness of freedom, I go there to unwind.

Now, I've been going there for years. Everytime I go I lose the tears. Gain courage and forget my fears.

There I'm not strained by the misery and pain that usually surrounds me,

Instead, I encounter the joy of serenity. Not thinking of what others think of me, I find my peace.

There forever I wish I could stay... In my secret hideaway.

The 'secret place' talked about in this poem is not a physical, geographical place at all. It is a place within yourself where you are able to block off negativity and be free from things that put you in the bondage of low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and insecurity.

One of the things that keeps people in this type of bondage is thinking about what others think about them; how they are perceived by others both physically and inwardly.

Will they think I'm weird? Does my hair and outfit look okay? Will what I want to say sound dumb? What will they think of me?
