NEVER stop working on yourself....you are a work in progress!

We are all complex people,
made up of several parts.
No one part defines us,
however prevalent.
And we should not be judged
by one attribute alone because
it's not the core of who we are.
We are much more complicated
than that.
Those who are wise can see beyond
our weaknesses and our flaws.
Inside each one of us we are strong.
It's just that our strength is expressed
in different ways.
And sometimes it needs to be
coaxed out of hiding.
But it doesn't mean that it isn't there.
I believe all people are essentially good.
It's just that some are more undeveloped.
We all started out the same way,
only some have advanced further than
the others.
I think of everyone as a work in progress.

It is a good poem indeed, and self-motivating

you are right again each of us has the same measure in life, some work at it to make a better life then some have not found the key to the door that will give them the hope of a better life.
