I believe in me

There's only one thing I believe,
I believe in me.
So what if I am not the smartest?
My hard earned knowledge is worthy.
So what if I haven't yet got the Grandee?
I know that I have the precious ability to repartee.

I just can't believe in fashion,
but I believe in interaction.
I've come to know that one's mind is highly reliable,
but worthy only if it's remissible.

Our mind is just like a crude diamond,
we should carve it so what if we swirl?
It is not as hard as operating an opera,
It is just as flexible as hydra.

I know I will grab the golden chances confidently,
and I will never compromise with my originality.
I want you to listen, my tensed heart,
that there is one thing I truly believe,
I BELIEVE IN ME..!!

The confidence in this poem is simply radiant, as I imagined you intended it to be. I like the philosophy of it, and the way in which you relayed it to us. The dove needs to be internally strong as it flies through the turbulent air. :)

Namaskaar raven. I have been thinking for a while what to say in response to your comment. As you might have noticed, I am not very good at socialising. And I think its rude not to respond to a person who has taken the pains to read my poem and then post his comments. But I would like to say that I am veeeeerryyyyyyyyy happy that you took out the time to do so. Thank you very much.... :-)

Oh, I'm very glad! And I am delighted to! You are by no means socially inadequate; and even if I thought you were, I'm the same way, so it wouldn't matter to me. :)

What is the meaning of 'namaskaar?'

It's the Indian way of saying hello. Namaskaar and Namaste mean the same. They are both Sanskrit words.

Hmm. So it can 'namaskaar' can be both a greeting and a goodbye, of a sort?

Right. No separate words are there for goodbye and hello. It's a very polite and ancient way of greeting.

Perhaps, in a way, if you believe in yourself, you believe in everything.

Beautiful poem, Dove, it's voice is loud and clear and strong.
