I Am Important #AToZChallenge

They said- "You are a garbage-bin.
You can only attract filth & sin.
You are idiotic; you have no talent."
I decided- "I am important."

They hurled abuses, threw refuse,
Treated me like gross stale news.
I still held onto my nature innocent.
I decided- "I am important."

They filled me to the brim;
And when things got really grim,
The garbage-van was sent...
I decided- "I am important."

It was interesting to see,
How I got cleaned thoroughly!
No more stinking content!
I decided- "I am important."

Do you feel Garbage-bins are important? Do you feel you are important?

I'm participating in my maiden #AToZChallenge. I For - I, Important, Innocent, Interesting
My Theme is- Poems About Life.


  1. You have the right attitude, one has to feel good about oneself for others to appreciate you.
    Great poem.


  2. Very good philosophy about valuing yourself!

  3. I've always believed until you think you're important and deserve respect, no one else will respect. Great poem of owning your own power.

  4. Very well said, Anita, you are only what you feel about yourself. :)

  5. What a lovely poem, I do think once you believe in yourself everything sorts itself out.

  7. Yes! The right attitude I say. We should all treat ourselves with importance. Often we treat ourselves like garbage.

  8. Well said. One needs to value one self before expecting it from others.

    -- Usha (A-Z Challenger)

  9. I think everyone is important in their own way. if one is confident of themselves, even if the world calls them a garbage bin, the person knows his worth.
