Insecurities

22 January, 2021

The wind is rustling

The leaves are falling,

With her mind bustling

Thoughts are crawling.

What have I done wrong?

She thinks to herself,

I have been suffering for too long.

She ponders while looking at the knife on the shelf

The world does not like her

Family does not accept,

Friends criticise her

Her entire life she has wept.

She leans closer to the knife

Ready to end it all,

This is not how she wanted to live her life

But she has made the call.

About to finish the journey

She Can’t hold back in,

It hurts to be me

She gives in.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

The world does not decide who you are

Friends do not determine how capable you are

So don’t care about that scar

Or if that dress is too bizarre

Just be yourself

Love yourself

Express yourself

But don’t hurt yourself.
