Kindness Where Thought There Was None

Stop doubting yourself, be bold. –Gordon Ramsey, MasterChefUS

For I have traveled so far, not knowing how I look
Even thinking that I am nothing more than a crook
And forgetting at times that I can be so much more
Reality is something that was always such a chore

And then came another
Who stood in front of me
Who I thought would criticize
But only bolstered me
