I’m My Own Best Friend

I'm good enough;
I don't care what you say.
I'm proud of what
I accomplished today.

Maybe I didn't win
Or even place,
But I tried really hard
And finished the race.

I set a personal best,
Which makes me feel good.
I did much better
Than I thought I could.

Why do you criticize
And try to make me feel small?
Does it make you feel better
When I stumble and fall?

Well, I'm here to tell you
That I won't let your words hurt.
Because when I fall,
I'll just pick myself up from the dirt.

And I'll keep on fighting
Until the end,
With a cheerleader in my corner,
Because I'm my own best friend.

So unless you have something
Positive to say,
I suggest you keep your mouth shut
And just go away.

Because my best friend and I
Are about to celebrate;
And we can do without you
Or your small-minded hate.
