1. Think Right

       by Dr. David V. Bush

Think smiles, and smiles shall be;
Think doubt, and hopes will flee.
Think love and love will grow;
Think good, and good is here;
Think vice, it’s jaws appear!
Think joy, and joy ne’er ends;
Think gloom, and dusk descends.
Think faith, and faith’s at hand;
Think ill, it stalks the land.
Think peace, sublime and sweet,
And you that peace will meet,
Think fear, with brooding mind,
And failure’s close behind.
Think this: “I’m Going to Win!”
Think not on what has been.
Think “Victory;” Think “I Can!”
Then you’re a Winning Man.

2. Believe in Yourself

       by George Ellison

This do not admit, that you
In this dream can fail.
Think of victory and let
Its bright hope prevail.

Do not say, “If I succeed,”
Say, “When I succeed.”
Most of all in any plan
Will and faith you need.

Faith that is is right for you.
That you must achieve
All you wish for. To do this,
In yourself believe.

3. The Fallacy of Tomorrow

       by A. C. Shaw

If we wait until Tomorrow,
And always hesitate,
Then when Tomorrow comes around,
We’re just a little late.

If we wait until Tomorrow,
Thinking there will be a way,
Then we do not know the value.
Of doing things Today.

If we wait until Tomorrow,
Then we close and lock the gate
Upon our opportunity,
Ascribing it to fate.

The man who says “I can’t,” today.
Will never pay his bill,
But fame and fortune wait upon
The man who says “I will.”

4. The Optimist Creed

       by Christian D. Larson

Promise Yourself:

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

5. I am Complete Simply Because I am Imperfect

       by Rupi Kaur

we think we are lost
while our fuller
found and complete selves
are somewhere in the future
we get on our hands and knees
thinking self-improvement will
help us reach them
but this finding ourselves bullshit
is never going to end
i’m tired of putting off living until
i have more information on who i am
i’m a new person every month
always becoming and unbecoming
only to become again
our fuller selves are not off in the future
they’re right here
in the only moment that exists
i don’t need fixing
i will be searching for answers my whole life
not because i’m a half-formed thing
but because i’m brilliant enough to keep growing
everything necessary to live a vivid life
already exists in me

6. The Poetry of You

       by Nikita Gill

You are not small.
You are not unworthy.
You are not insignificant.

The universe wove you from a constellation
just so atom, every fibre in you comes from
a different star.

Together, you are bound by stardust, altogether
spectacularly created from the energy of the
universe itself.

And that, my darling,
is the poetry of physics,
the poetry of you.

7. Still I Rise

       by Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

8. Phenomenal Woman

       by Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

9. Be Yourself

       by Ellen Bailey

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 more time practicing just being you

10. Confidence

       by Anne Bronte

Oppressed with sin and woe,
A burdened heart I bear,
Opposed by many a mighty foe:
But I will not despair.
With this polluted heart
I dare to come to Thee,
Holy and mighty as Thou art;
For Thou wilt pardon me.

I feel that I am weak,
And prone to every sin:
But Thou who giv’st to those who seek,
Wilt give me strength within.

Far as this earth may be
From yonder starry skies;
Remoter still am I from Thee:
Yet Thou wilt not despise.

I need not fear my foes,
I need not yield to care,
I need not sink beneath my woes:
For Thou wilt answer prayer.

In my Redeemer’s name,
I give myself to Thee;
And all unworthy as I am
My God will cherish me.

O make me wholly Thine!
Thy love to me impart,
And let Thy holy spirit shine
For ever on my heart!

11. Keep Going

       by Edgar Guest

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
And the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than it seems
To a faint and faltering man.
Often the struggler has given up when he
Might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems afar.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit.
It’s when things seem worst that
You musn’t quit.

12. I Love Being Me

       by Gemma Hayton

I can’t run the fastest
I can’t swim the sea
I can’t type the quickest
but I love being me

I can’t kick a ball
or even climb a tree
I can’t roll in the grass
but I still love being me

You see, this is my life
as others would see
they don’t know what it’s like
to really be me

So next time I’m about
rolling down the street
don’t think of me disabled
but someone cool to meet

13. Strength, Confidence & Freedom

       by Marilee Morley

Strength comes in many forms,
It comes in physical aspect,
Or in a silent mind,
Still it is in many forms.

Confidence is being true to oneself,
Being who you are,
Not following a path that is already laid out,
But making your own by mending it with every step.

Freedom is their so you can do so,
To stand for what you believe in,
Guide yourself in your own beliefs,
Yet stand for those who can not.

Strength is power in so many different ways,
Confidence is being to be who you are,
Freedom is a gift not a right.

14. A Quiet Confidence

       by Rita Umali

out of darkness
you called me
you set free
my crippled heart
my broken soul

a midst the storm
you put me
high above
the clouds
and granted me
peace and joy
against the turmoil
of the world’s woe

you healed the nightmares
of the past
made whole my life
created a new creation
a beautiful one

Lord you put new hope
in my heart
my spirit drowned
in your love
and grace

with a new day
i face
not with fear
nor pride
but just a quiet
in my God
who will strengthen me
all throughout

15. Self-Confidence

       by Daya Nandan

Building up self-confidence is a vital thing,
For it can put you on the path to becoming a king,
Self-confidence for making decisions and taking chances,
Self-confidence for success in future advances,

You need self-confidence no matter what you do,
For without it you cannot unlock potential so true,
Be it in studying, relationships or winning a fight,
Having low self-esteem is being lost in darkness without light,

Build self-confidence inside, nourish the spirit within,
Let it radiate through your actions and your outer skin,
Embrace self-confidence, let it be your life’s magic key,
For it will open many doors towards a brighter destiny,

Believe in yourself, self-confidence will plant the seed,
And in time it will bare the fruit of courage that you need,
It will aid you greatly, a means to change the circumstances ahead,
Use it wisely and well but never let too much get to your head.

1. The Road not Taken

       by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

2. If

       by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you  
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,  
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;  
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;  
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;  
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;  
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,  
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,  
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,  
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,  
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

3. A Psalm of Life

       by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

What The Heart Of The Young Man Said To The Psalmist.
Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.

Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each to-morrow
Find us farther than to-day.

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.

In the world’s broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
Be a hero in the strife!

Trust no Future, howe’er pleasant!
Let the dead Past bury its dead!
Act,— act in the living Present!
Heart within, and God o’erhead!

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time;

Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o’er life’s solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.

To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time
By Robert Herrick
Gather ye rose-buds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he’s a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he’s to setting.

That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.

Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may, go marry;
For having lost but once your prime,
You may forever tarry.

4. Do not Go Gentle into That Good Night

       by Dylan Thomas

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,  
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

5. If I Can Stop One Heart from Breaking

       by Emily Dickinson

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

6. The Emperor of Ice-Cream

       by Wallace Stevens

Call the roller of big cigars,
The muscular one, and bid him whip
In kitchen cups concupiscent curds.
Let the wenches dawdle in such dress
As they are used to.

The only emperor is the emperor of ice-cream.

Take from the dresser of deal that sheet
That once belonged to Madam Phlaccid, flat
And spread it so as to cover her face.
If her horny feet protrude, they come
To show how cold she is, and dumb.

Let the lamp affix its beam.
The only emperor is the emperor of ice-cream.

7. To Autumn

       by John Keats

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.

Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,
Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;
Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep,
Drows’d with the fume of poppies, while thy hook
Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers:
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep
Steady thy laden head across a brook;
Or by a cyder-press, with patient look,
Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours.

Where are the songs of spring? Ay, Where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,—
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;
Among the river sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.

11. The Owl and the Pussycat

       by Edward Lear

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea,
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.

The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”

Pussy said to the Owl, “You elegant fowl,
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried,
But what shall we do for a ring?”

They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-Tree grows,
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood,
With a ring at the end of his nose,

The Piggy-wig said, “My dear, here’s a plan,
That we can put into practice,
Get married at once, and we’ll live happy ever after,
In this beautiful pea-green boat!”

12. Jabberwocky

       by Lewis Carroll

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jubjub bird,” he says,
For Fullwise guffaws splash him thrice
On unicycle wheels, he rode
Upon a frumious bandersnatch.

He left the dead moose on the table,
And spilled the tea all over the place,
Then he took the dishes and the spoons,
And played a jig upon the king’s face.

13. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

       by T.S. Eliot

Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky,
Like a patient etherized upon a table;
I am not a philosopher, nor do I know anything about the universe.

I should have been a pair of ragged claws
Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.
I should have been a pair of ragged claws
Descending down the chimney, scrabbling up the walls.

I am not a crab, nor do I have any claws,
Nor do I scuttle, nor do I crawl,
But sometimes, late at night, I sit and ponder,
And wonder what it’s all about, and why we bother.

Embark on an enriching journey of self-belief with longer confidence poems. These long poems about confidence explore the depths of confidence and self-assurance, resonating with unwavering strength and conviction.

1. Invictus

       by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

2. Confidence

       by Ralph Waldo Emerson

In an age of fops and toys,
Wanting wisdom, wanting poise,
I stand alone, like a lighthouse on the shore,
And send my beams of light forevermore.

I care not what the world may say,
I live my life my own sweet way.
I’m confident in who I am,
And I’m not afraid to show my hand.

I’m not perfect, but I’m real.
I’m strong, I’m brave, I’m kind.
I’m a force to be reckoned with,
And I’m leaving my mark on this world, bit by bit.

So if you’re looking for someone to follow,
Someone to lead the way,
Look no further than me.
I’m the one who will take you to the promised day.

3. I am Enough

       by Brené Brown

I am enough,
Just as I am.
I am worthy of love,
Of happiness,
Of success.

I don’t need to change myself
To be loved or accepted.
I am perfect just the way I am.

I am enough,
Even when I make mistakes.
Even when I fail.
Even when I don’t feel like I am.

I am enough,
Because I am me.

4. The Waste Land

       by T.S. Eliot

These fragments I have shored against my ruins
Show me your eyes for they are the windows to the soul
Here we go round the prickly pear
Prickly pears, hairy claws
They call us the Flower of Evil

Shape without form, shade without color,
Paralyzed force, gesture without motion.
Their blood has become thick as mud
Blood that has been breathed on,
Once they were one person, now they are two
One is always at home, the other far away.

5. If You Forget Me

       by Pablo Neruda

If you forget me, let me vanish,
like a flower in the forest,
unnoticed by all,
and trodden underfoot.

If you forget me, let me disappear,
like a word unspoken,
a shadow without substance,
a sound that dies away.

But if you remember me, let it be
as a flame that flickers,
a candle in the darkness,
a fire that burns bright.

6. I Am a Woman

       by Warsan Shire

I am a woman,
A river, a sea, a mountain, a storm,
A flower, a tree, a bird, a song,
A smile, a laugh, a tear, a dream.

I am a woman,
A mystery, a puzzle, an enigma,
A source of wonder, a work of art,
A masterpiece, a creation.

7. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

       by T.S. Eliot

Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherized upon a table;
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know that I shall never be a saint,
At least, not in the way that saints are known.

I have been afraid, all my life,
Of being caught up in a routine,
Of being like everyone else,
Of living a life that’s just the same.

And so I have come to this place,
Where I can sit and think and drink my tea,
And try to make some sense of it all,
In this chaotic world we live in.

1. The Dream Keeper

       by Langston Hughes

When a dream takes its flight,
It’s like a bird in the night,
Flapping its wings so free,
In the sky of my mind, it can be.
Oh, I have seen it fly,
Above the trees, above the clouds,
And when it comes to rest,
I know that dream is blessed.
For it has lived and grown,
In the secret place where dreams are known;
Where hopes and joys untold,
Are safe from prying eyes and cold.
Then let us dream, my friends,
And make our dreams come true,
For only then will we find peace,
And all our sorrows lose their hue.

I am not afraid… I was born to climb.
I am not afraid… I was born to shine.
I am not afraid… I was born to be.

3. Caged Bird

       by Maya Angelou

A caged bird stands on the grave of dreams,
In a hopeless, fearful attitude.
He sings of freedom, longing for the skies,
But his song dies, as he opens his eyes.
His wings flutter futilely against bars,
A prison whose walls won’t let him pass.
He sighs and asks why he was ever made,
If never to feel the sunshine’s shade.
But still he sings, though his voice is weak,
A melody pure, a sorrow unique.
For even hope, the bird knows, would die,
If he did not sing of liberty.

4. Little Girl Speaks

       by Sharon Draper

Little girl speaks, her voice trembles,
Words spill out, heart overflows,
She tells of pain and hurt,
Of feelings locked deep inside,
Of secrets kept hidden away,
Of scars that cannot hide.
Her voice grows stronger now,
As she shares her story,
Of courage found within,
Of strength in every glory.
No longer silent, no longer still,
Little girl speaks, and she stands tall,
Her voice echoes through the land,
A call to others to stand tall.
