You Were Born to Fly - Dr. S. B. Middlebrook

Like an eagle, you were born to fly; like an eagle, regal, up high.

Touching the highest places of your fondest dreams; soaring majestic on gossamer wings.

You were born to fly … there’s no doubt in my mind; the height you can get to is your way to find.

Flying over oceans, making friends with the seas; floating in the blue sky, seeing tip tops of trees;

Touching stars in Heaven, showing moonlight the way; hitching rides on comets, watching night turn to day.

Now you’re flying your highest on gossamer wings; proving thoughts are crucial, and the mind, everything.

Clearing the flight path was the first thing you had to do; to change the dialogue, of what you’re saying to you.

Once you are ready to have faith and believe; you’ll find there are no limits to what you can achieve. 

Claim your priceless gift of the ever-present now. It's time to let go of past pain and fear of tomorrow. As we study inspirational poems for self-esteem, let us take courage in hand and explore our true worth.

Start Where You Stand - by Berton Braley

Start where you stand and never mind the past,

The past won’t help you in beginning new,

If you have left it all behind at last

Why, that’s enough, you’re done with it, you’re through;

This is another chapter in the book,

This is another race that you have planned,

Don’t give the vanished days a backward look,

Start where you stand.


The world won’t care about your old defeats

If you can start anew and win success;

The future is your time, and time is fleet

And there is much of work and strain and stress;

Forget the buried woes and dead despairs,

Here is a brand-new trial right at hand,

The future is for him who does and dares,

Start where you stand.


Old failures will not halt, old triumphs aid,

To-day’s the thing, to-morrow soon will be;

Get in the fight and face it unafraid,

And leave the past to ancient history,

What has been, has been; yesterday is dead

And by it you are neither blessed nor banned;

Take courage, man, be brave and drive ahead,

Start where you stand.

Become like the warrior. We must shed our façade of low self-esteem. As inspirational poems for self-esteem encourage – we must become.

The Warrior Prayer - By Stuart Wilde

I am what I am. In having faith in the beauty within me, I develop trust. In softness I have strength. In silence I walk with the gods. In peace I understand myself and the world. In conflict I walk away.In detachment I am free.In respecting all living things, I repeat myself.

In dedication I honor the courage within me. In eternity I have compassion for the nature of all things. In love I unconditionally accept the evolution of others. In freedom I have power. In my individuality I express the God within me. In service I give of what I have become. I am what I am, Eternal, immortal, universal, and infinite.

It Takes Courage – Author Unknown

It takes strength to be firm, It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to conquer, It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to be certain, It takes courage to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in, It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend's pain, It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to endure abuse, It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone, It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to love, It takes courage to be loved.

It takes strength to survive, It takes courage to live.

Inspirational poems for self-esteem encapsulate the human experience – thoughts, feelings, senses – with words of enlightenment. You are regal!
