Pave your own path

I created a poem inspired from the movie "Bend It Like Beckham". the theme of my poem is knowing your worth and becoming your own person.



Don't let others tell you your potential


Don't let others tell you your worth

When you find something that you love

There is nothing that can stop you from loving it


When you find someone that you love

There is nothing that can stop you from loving them


When you are held down by so many restrictions

It is hard to find your own path


When everyone tells you that you can't

It's hard to believe you can


When everyone tells you no

It's hard to remember what yes sounds like



Don't let others tell you what to or not to do


Pave your own path




Artist statement


This poem is inspired by the movie “Bend It Like Beckham”. I wanted to put a really good theme into my poem, I chose knowing your worth and becoming your own person. I chose this theme because this was pretty much the theme of Bend It Like Beckham. I really like the theme because lots of people struggle with becoming your own person and knowing your worth, especially in the teenage years, so this poem could help or inspire any person having these troubles.This poem is a free verse. I included some repetition and a little bit of emotive language as well as hyperbole. One of my favorite lines is “When everyone tells you no, It's hard to remember what yes sounds like” I created this line because in the movie all jess got told was no,so this phrase is basically saying that nobody should always be put down and told what to, sometimes you have to let people have freedom and fun! In conclusion, always remember that you are your own person and for the most part you can make your own decisions.
