SOMEONE TO BE PROUD OF ME
All my life I have tried to be
Everything, everyone expected of me
Nothing I did ever passed the test
Even though I know I tried my best

People sort of ruled me from the start
Many of them said things that broke my heart
I always made them think, I was strong inside
But it didn't take much to bruise my pride

Now I am older but still I seek
Just one person to say they're proud of me
Why it's important, I'll never know
I don't know why this bothers me so

I may never be the person,  people expect  me to be
I may never reach the goals they think I should reach
I just wish that just for once in my life
Someone would be proud of this Mother, Author, Business Professional, Cancer Survivor, and Wife

And you should be proud of yourself for all that you have done and are doing now. As Eleanor Roosevelt said "No one has the power to make you feel bad aboutyourself unless you give it to them". (Or something like that) Coo speaks for all of us here.

Hi Bid, It won't let me accept your Friend Request. Say I must be 18. I'm certainly that. I loved your poem

I agree, we all are. But more importantly... you have to be. Brilliant and meaningful writing there. Thank you.

Synopsis
We all want the people we love to be proud of us. Some of us just never seem to reach the high mark set to deserve those words. (OR, DO WE)!
