Now I Know

You were wrong to underestimate me.
You were wrong to not have any faith in myself and my success.
You were wrong to say the things you've said.
You were wrong to bring me down.

Although, while you were wrong
for everything you've did.
I cannot fully blame you
for my sadness you've caused.
For, I was also in the wrong.

I was wrong to blieve
everyword that you'd spoke.
I was wrong to let you
make me doubt my ownself.
I was wrong to think that I'll fail
and have no amount of success at all.

But, now I know.
I now know that i am stronger
than you, your words, and belief.
I now know that it's not what you think nor say;
that it is what I think about myself and how I feel.

It's a poem of strength. At the same time, it's a poem of understanding and realization. Liked it. 'I cannot fully blame you for my sadness you've caused. For, I was also in the wrong' - This realization helps one bear the wrongs in good grace and right oneself accordingly. 'I now know that it's not what you think nor say; that it is what I think about myself and how I feel.' - Such understanding of one's own self makes one feel stronger. A poem that inspires!
