Keep singing your song because YOU like it

When people criticize you, your behavior or your work,

You're affected only if you think that they are right.

If you find yourself fighting for your respect- work on it.

You will get to the top of your game, I assure you.

To heal an insult pricking you in the light of the day,

Rendering you speechless while wanting to play defense;

Work away into the nights, not caring for time or sweat.

The effort to clear the scars off your personal record,

Your passion to become the best and your hurting ego;

They'll light up your spirit- you will glow with pride.

When people blame you for something you haven't done,

When they're being unjust, insensitive and mean-

Try explaining calmly, honestly, yet discreetly.

If it doesn't have effect though, be happy that you tried!

Rise above your anger and disgust for their callousness.

Be glad you're you, blessed with greater understanding.

Explaining your position to the others in the same space,

When they won't feel for you or say the right words;

Is a wastage of your time, value, emotion and intent.

Puff up your collar knowing you're fabulous- why fret?

Quit feeling guilty about maladjustments life brings;

You're doing all you think is right- you're doing well.

Remember- you're the one that matters most- so, sing!

I love this. It doesn't mean I can't take their criticism into consideration, but if I don't think they are right, then I can carry on in all confidence!!!
Thank you
