Proud

I didn’t want to tell you I was struggling,I didn’t want to show you that ultimately I failed.I project this strong, confident capable person,Able and sure of themselves,Yet, I am really withdrawn, retiring and somewhat reserved,Too proud to ask for help because I will appear a failure,Ashamed of the picture of strength I display, yet…

Water

Bubbling, gurgling up around meFeeling like I am barely gathering air,Struggling to catch my breath,Just floating in water,Waves crash over me,Their force knocking the wind out of my lungs,Ebbing and flowing through me like blood,Seeking, searching for something to grab onto, Looking for some comfort and support,But the water just keeps coming,Trying to suppress the…

Insecure

Insecurities are loud they say,Trust me, I know, I’m shouting them,Busy not liking so many things about myself,I spot them easily within you,Fermenting, churning all the things I’d like to change about myself,But falling back into the same old patterns,Doubting that I am good enough,Fearing maybe I have been the issue all along,Unsure how to…
