Anger bursting from the seams,
Ridiculed and deemed,
Yet it wasn’t I who chose this path,
Offered no understanding,
No empathy, wrath
Contain I must the slow fire inside,
For ‘the greater good’
I sacrifice pride
Ever scream at the world?
Angry, hurt, frustrated. You scream until your face turns blue then you realize your actually screaming at the world inside you. The face in the mirror that you feel like you can’t escape.
It taunts you. It haunts you. It constantly disappoints. It shows you just how far you are from your ideal, and putting on that fake happy face to try to seize the day kills you a little more each time.
Depressed? Who says?! You’re just not enough, because if you were you wouldn’t feel this way and you’d be able to satisfy the people closest to you.
All of this is a lie you are believing. You are telling yourself and believing in a lie.
Now listen to the little voice, the one that’s been silenced by insecurities for way too long. What does it have to say?
You don’t have to be “more.” You are being prepared for the next step. Take courage and wait.
Pretty powerful words if you let them sink in.
Don’t be discouraged from discovering truth. “The truth shall set you free.” Funny part is that it’s freedom from you. Your insecurities. Oh, and the bullshit you “put up with” everyday.
I hope you find inspiration to listen to that little voice. Coming from someone on the other side, so to speak, it’s worth it.
