I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

A poem to share

on November 19, 2012

I came across this poem that was written by a teen named Angie Flores.  I think it is really special and I wanted to share it.   It would be wonderful if all teens could believe in themselves, like she does.  The poem is called JUST BECAUSE.

Just because I have never done drugs, doesn’t mean I’m not cool.

Just because I am a virgin, doesn’t make me lame.

Just because I’m not a fighter, doesn’t mean I’m weak.

Just because I am not a party girl, doesn’t mean I can’t hang.

Just because I get good grades, doesn’t mean I’m a nerd.

Just because teachers like me, doesn’t mean I am teachers pet.

Just because I am not a rebel, doesn’t mean I’m scared.

Just because I am quiet, doesn’t mean I don’t speak up for what I believe in.

Just because I have morals, doesn’t make me a goodie two shoes.

Just because I walk away from trouble, doesn’t make me a pushover.

Just because I think before I act, doesn’t make me a loser.

I am who I am and this is who I shall forever be. I do not care what others think of me. Like me or not that is your choice. Accept me for who I am.
