Your Time To Shine

In life there will be moments for everyone to shine
So follow all you dream of don't waste precious time
Seize every opportunity which may come your way
Have faith in all you do and everything will be okay

Don't dwell on past mistakes that you may have made
It’s just a part of who you are be proud, not ashamed
For you have special qualities that make you unique
Pursue all you aspire to, be confident in all you seek

You deserve the best in life and all that it can give
Do not settle for second best or be just happy with.....
Your destiny belongs to you, dreams that you follow
May lead to great things and a chance for you to show

That you have what it takes, to be the one to succeed
Embrace all that you fear and you will start to believe
In life you can be anything; if it’s what you want to be
Walk tall with your head held high, value all you see

Don’t be taken for granted, for the person that you are
This is your time to shine, believe that you can go far
You're worth it in every aspect, be sure that you know
Be kind to those around you, for we reap what we sow

You may take knocks sometimes, as in life we all do
Just pick yourself back up and then continue to pursue
It is your time to shine, so be strong; please don't delay
Do not be disregarded as you have a right to your say

Your opinion does matter; it shows how you feel inside
The future is your journey and one that you can decide
The path that you choose to follow only you can define
You will always be a star but now it’s your time to shine

  1. Now it`s your time to shine,so grab it with both hands,luv you lots xxx

  2. The future is your journey; where this goes, you decide
    The path that you may follow is the one you can define
    You will always be a star but now it's your time to shine
    well said nice creation,like a boost to develop a positive attitude.

  3. Beautifully written but sadly wasted on a cynic like me. I find it hard to take all the positivity seriously. Maybe because that's not my experience of life. This does not take away that this is a well written and positive piece but I feel it's for a particular audience.

  4. Many thanks for your feedback on my poem, much appreciated and I would agree that this is for a particular audience and not to everyone's taste. Thank you for taking the time to read it and for posting your comment as all feedback is welcome.

  5. Beautiful - what a talent. Helen Brough x
