Our Greatest Fear

1/24/2007 | 2557 views | Category: Ghetto Poems | Tags: Famous Poem,

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people

permission to do the same.
