No more validation!

by Chandra Sundeep

I searched and searched

For a ray of hope

To pull me from the abyss


I prayed and prayed

For one righteous being

Who would stand by me, support me


Denied, despised

I stopped looking, I stopped searching

I shut my eyes, shut out the world


In hatred, in despair

I learned 

Valuable lessons



The secret

I’d been seeking all along


Calm, peace

Love, respect

I gained all


The world mirrors

My thoughts, my self esteem

The change must come from within


The day I stopped 

Seeking validation outside

I truly found myself

And discovered the beauty hidden inside
