Gifts I Own
I was never born with any gifts,
so people said I won't succeed,
as the world is too competitive,
and hard to survive.
So I developed my own gifts,
first one being mind- reading.
I'm not psychic, but I observe,
how others act and talk; and
ultimately what they think.
The second is my perseverance.
I preserve until I succeed as
it is the key to the success,
that many people never sees.
The next of course is my writings.
I write off all my emotions;
be it ecstasy or despair,
I write and keep them aside,
in order to protect my mindfulness.
These are my gifts to stay afloat.
Now everyone says I'll survive,
no matter where or when,
as it is my best gift- survival skills.
