It is not pride,
It is belief in your self-
The best accessory a girl can own;
The best ever make up you could ever wear;
The first requisite to great undertakings,
It is pursuing your dreams,
Not letting anyone say that you can't be something-
But it is making them fear your abilities…
It is answering the question-
Who am I? as -
The feeling of wearing an INVISIBLE CROWN,
When someone pulls you down when -
You know you are at YOUR BEST!
It is feeling young,
Even when you are responsible parents of teenagers!
That which creates YOUR SELF…
The ability to feel and look beautiful,
Even when someone talks the worst of your looks;
It is the belief that what is not right today -
Is going to be right someday; eventually
It is not changing your self,
For confidence resides only in GOOD HEARTS…
It is shunning your ears to the
Inner voice of fear,
It is continuing to do your best,
In spite of not getting credit for it.
It is saying-I am perfectly me,
Though you call me imperfect!
It is being humble in your attitude,
And courageous in your behavior…
It is that which weakens your enemies' will power,
Shattering down their plots…
It is facing life with strength,
For once you loose-
It becomes a habit.
The foundation for success and achievements-
That which makes yours HATERS-
It is that which makes you feel;
The entire world admires you,
Whose absence-
Magnifies the universe against you!
It is not fitting into harsh situations,
But paving your own path,
Challenging your opponent's mind-
Here is a tough force to reckon with!
It is that which makes your critics,
Feel down in your presence…
It is sparkling out when someone dulls you;
It is the eventful story of your success,
Of you bouncing back, amid adversities;
It is that which invites envy from many;
And love for some!
It is saying-
When others say you can't!
It is thinking about what you think of your self,
Rather than what others think of you!
That which makes a woman beautiful even;
When she gets up with a messy hair,
Sans make up, discharging her daily duties,
It is the most precious jewel ‘
Every woman ought to have,
It is contagious dear women,
Catch it and spread it!

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
