ON THE SCALE OF YOUR OWN EYES

a poem by peninnah ng'ang'a, Kenya

I been called beautiful
But I been told am ugly too!
I been told mine is a wise breed
And also I been called a fool!

See!It doesn't matter what the world thinks
What matter is what I believe to be true!

Baby,its not about me,us
Its not about them!
Everybody got an opinion,you see;
Whatever perception anyone has about you
That is their business!

What do you believe about you?
What is your perception about you?
Towards you?
What is your worth on the scale of your own eyes?
Now that's what you should worry about!


(Written for one of my teen-Mentees!Oh!Beautiful bright girl feeling she ain't good enough...)
