Be Yourself by Ellen BaileyTop Self-Esteem Poems 

Why would you want to be someone else
When you could be better by being yourself
Why pretend to be someone you are not
When you have something they haven’t got

Cheating yourself of the life you have to live
Deprives others of that only which you can give
You have much more to offer by being just you
Than walking around in someone else’s shoes

Trying to live the life of another is a mistake
It is a masquerade; nothing more than a fake
Be yourself and let your qualities show through
Others will love you more for being just you  

Remember that God loves you just as you are
To Him you are already a bright shining star
Family and friends will love you more too
If you spent time practicing just being you

Live Each Moment by Anonymous

I may never see tomorrow,
there is no written guarantee.
And things that happened yesterday,
belong to history

I cannot predict the future,
I cannot change the past
I have just the present moment,
I must treat it as my last

I must use this moment wisely,
for it will soon pass away
And be lost to me forever,
as part of yesterday

I must exercise compassion,
help the fallen to their feet.
Be a friend unto the friendless,
make an empty life complete

The unkind things I do today,
may never be undone
And friendships that I fail to win,
may never more be won

I may not have another chance
on bended knee to pray
And thank God with humble heart,
for giving me this day

Victorious Attitude by James Kisner

You cannot win the race, 
unless you follow through.
You cannot blame the others, 
for it all depends on you. 

You cannot win the battle, 
if you do not raise your sword.
You cannot claim a victory, 
if there is no reward. 

You cannot shape the future, 
if you wait until it’s here.
The future has no purpose, 
if you live today in fear. 

Your future lies within your hand, 
to do with what you may.
For tomorrow brings results, 
of what you’ve done today. 

The choices that you make today, 
reflect the life you seek.
But first of all, the seeds are sown, 
before the gardener reaps. 

The future’s like a lump of clay, 
you hold within your hand.
As time goes by, the clay gets hard, 
so mould it while you can. 

Failure is an attitude, 
that haunts the mind of man.
But, results will be successful,
for the one who knows HE CAN!

Help Yourself to Happiness by Helen Steiner Rice

Everybody, everywhere
seeks happiness, it’s true,
But finding it and keeping it
seem difficult to do.

Difficult because we think
that happiness is found
Only in the places where
wealth and fame abound.

And so we go on searching
in palaces of pleasure
Seeking recognition
and monetary treasure,

Unaware that happiness
is just a state of mind
Within the reach of everyone
who takes time to be kind.

For in making others happy
we will be happy, too.
For the happiness you give away
returns to shine on you.

How to Improve Yourself by Anonymous

Let each man learn to know himself;
To gain that knowledge let him labor
To improve those failings in himself
Which he condemns so in his neighbor. 

How lenient our own faults we view,
And conscience’s voice adeptly smother;
Yet, oh, how harshly we review
The selfsame failings in another! 

And if you meet an erring one
Whose deeds are blamable and thoughtless,
Consider, ere you cast the stone,
If you yourself are pure and faultless. 

Oh, list to that small voice within,
Whose whisperings oft make men confounded,
And trumpet not another’s sin;
You’d blush deep if your own were sounded.

And in self-judgment if you find
Your deeds to others are superior,
To you has Providence been kind,
As you should be to those inferior. 

Example sheds a genial ray
Of light which men are apt to borrow;
So first improve yourself today
And then improve your friends tomorrow.
