It's a mystery
why I ever caught your attention
I never thought myself as beautiful
as remarkable, as amazing
and yet you tell me everyday
I am

So long a time
I believed something so different
ridiculed by many
shunned by the rest

But now that I have you
it is so much different
my head once again held high
showing who I really am

It doesn't matter what others think
not anymore
Your words are all I need
your touch is all I feel
My smile is only for you

Because when you tell me
I'm beautiful
remarkable
amazing
I believe you
as I hope you believe me
when I say the same

Because it is the truth
At least in my opinion
Truth is a matter of opinion ;)

You say "Truth is a matter of opinion" but is that true for everybody or is that just your opinion ;]

Delilah for your own protection
Don't use a man to see your reflection

I'm glad your happy no thats true
But they cant judge your worth for you

Love we know should bring us joy
But self worth isn't gained from a boy

The true Delilah you just can't hide
& all you are is deep inside

I like your poems but your mood seems to go up & down with the state of your relationships ;)

I'm glad I inspired you to write a poem, but I don't think it's entirely true. Looking through my poems again I don't think it really showed I had a "down" moment. I broke up with my ex over a year ago, wrote a poem about that, but he never broke my spirit, or made me hate myself. I know what I'm worth, my current relationship only makes that come out more. I've had many moments in the past where people tried very hard to destroy my spirit. They never succeeded. All the poems where it shows I was misunderstood or ridiculed all refer to a long time ago when I was in highschool. This would be about 10 years ago. It made me stronger in the end. And after all the learning I had to go through I now know for sure, that the state of my current relationship will always be up :)
Besides, I think it's very normal for your mood to be down if a relationship ends. As long as it doesn't end up in self loathing. You don't need your true love to be happy in life, but it does help. ^^ Sorry for the wall of text, I just needed to explain.
