You aren’t good enough? Who even gave them the right to judge you Who says you don’t know your worth There’s more than a billion people in the world and I’m sorry if you feel that the opinion if just one person or a few people can alter your life. Only the creator gives life and SHE moulds us beautifully . We are the masterpiece she has set up Yet you still keep the insults you’re thrown at to yourself? You want to take the life the creator gives as if you bore yourself I know you’re trying to hang on I know it’s hard I know they’re saying things about you Nasty things Hold on Don’t do it It will end in tearsssssssss Then I wonder how my worth could be determined by another person as if I don’t own my own body My body is mine and not yours So why would i want to trade it for anything? If you really care the way you do, you will see past the flesh and that would be genuine There’s a lot of voices in your head I’m sorry you have to go through this But hang on, It’s not easy trying to still cling unto life I know you already feel lifeless and you can hold your shadow already Hang on These people, they choose to be mean because they’re also battling They also look in the mirror and break They’re insensitive That should not bother you There is effort put into anything that’s about to be made Effort cannot be wasted There is use for everything They want to oppress you to make you feel bad Prove them wrong Stand with your principles Do not stutter If you stutter Write If you can’t write Sing If you can’t sing Dance What ever passes the message that you are strong You are beautiful You are handsome And most of all confident No matter the medium You’re a Star Light that someone else should not dim. Theres a purpose A niche to be carved Be You. Ernestine Okafor
That was Ernestine Okafor, everyone! She is truly such a wonderful soul! I truly feel confident after reading the poem above, my heart bloomed in a way, that cannot be expressed on paper.

Here is a small bio of Ernestine Okafor:
“I am Ernestine Okafor. A teenage blogger from Abuja , Nigeria. I love to read and eat. I write too and I love to meet new people and visit places.I started blogging last year and it has been an awesome journey so far. My blog timewithernie.wordpress.com is my blog. It’s a lifestyle blog where I am literally myself; writing articles , outing experiences and reviews , mental health talks ,skincare & beauty and sharing my love for books. I started blogging because I feel like writing is the fastest way for other people to interpret what I feel inside that I cannot let out. I want people to rub minds with me and benefit positively from my writing. I wanted to be heard then and now , I know it’s what I’m passionate about because of the enthusiasm and passion that burns in me. The purpose of my blog is to showcase what I’m about through my platform. Let the world see this young girl with bubbling thoughts ready to explode through my posts.”

With that, I have got to say my GOODBYE’s to all of you! Till next time!💕
