But try to smile wide and take it with a stride.
When nobody talks to you, you will feel rejected,
But take a deep breath and find peace in yourself.
When nobody values your views, it will cause heartaches,
But try to take a pause and reflect on it well.
When nobody is your friend, you will feel worthless,
But try and walk ahead, for you will find the best.
When nobody cares, it will make you very sad,
But try and find your 'self', for no one can love you any better.
When nobody stands up for you, you will feel let down,
But try and find your voice to fight your own battles.
When nobody supports you, you will feel like not living,
But try to be positive and hold on to your feelings.
When nobody does anything, just remember one thing,
they are not the reason you are really here.
I know it ain't easy as you struggle living here,
I know it ain't easy to not cry yet forget.
But I want you to remember that none of these matter,
when you wake up tomorrow and take your next step.
In the years to follow, a time will come,
when you will be wanted by all who didn't at first care.
You will be called in for a chat or two,
May be for a photo and an autograph too.
Then you will see how they adore you,
and cherish those little moments they ever knew you.
Time will come dear and your dreams will too,
Keep your spirits up and they will surely come true.

Note: A poem that has been on my mind for a while now. Not sure how easy it is to follow every word given here. But every time I read, I find it makes me really better.
