Confidence Speaks Her Mind

(Here’s a poem that was an assignment for my 8th graders. We are giving advice and the speaker is not necessarily the poet. In this poem, confidence…or maybe over-confidence…is speaking.)

Listen only to
Your heart.
You know
What
You need.

Others
May
Inform you.
Only you
Know
What is right
For you.

Your mistakes
Will be
Your greatest teacher.
See
What goes wrong
And change.
You will own
Your behavior.

If
You are really listening,
You will doubt
My words.

Good for you.
