Day 234 – Confidence in Appearance

Leave a comment

Not too long ago,
I was told that appearance
Built confidence.
And while I do not condone
Materialism
I’m sure there is truth in this sentiment.
See, if you look good, you’ll perform well.
How can I tell?
Well, let’s take a look, a good hard look.
When you take pride
And carry yourself with dignity.
With class.
With clarity.
It’s easier to make those impressions last.
When you take note of your smile
And speak with your eyes.
With your laugh.
With your hands.
Your positivity will fill the other half of the glass.
When you remember your posture
And dance with an upright gaze
With a healing past
With a tender heart
You’ll reach your wisdom at last.
For this alternate route
May be unorthodox
Nontraditional.
But the shared advice is truthful
And never fictional.
