If I could just overpower my inner demons
I would be so free
To not care how many friends,
How many events
To love my self and know my worth
Irrespective of my interactions with the outside
For my inner strength to overpower my outer insecurities
To be free
I ache in my search
the pain is unbearable
Yet I can’t reach
always out of reach
I know what I need
yet it seems impossible to break my nature
constructed as it may be.
Arduous and tormenting activity
What truly matters?
What truly begets happiness and assurance?
How can one alter the inner monologue?
One which has been so meticulously created
and so relentlessly reinforced…
I want to escape
but I don’t know how.
