she’s not good enough
someone told her so
dripped poison in her ear
a long time ago

the mirror confirms
shows dull frizzy hair
a nose too long
ugly body when bare

the paper confirms
when she scrawls with pen
mediocre writing
no contest it’d win

the past confirms
no good deeds done
no sacrifices made
no battles won

the present confirms
a dull empty life
no one’s darling
no one’s wife

the future confirms
what she already knows
nothing will change
down that long dark road

    • I’ve known a few of those insecure types; they hate themselves and take it out on those around them. And no amount of trying to reach them, no amount of reasoning, will convince them of that fact. After all, they are perfect and never wrong. Grrrr… 🤬🤬🤬
      Thanks, Rann…your last sentence made me smile. ☺️🖤
