You call it foolishness
I call it my truth.
The way I choose to walk
In the world will no longer be determined by you
When I’m the one who’s affected;
My self esteem scarred way during the days of my youth.
The fear of rejection from the people I love
Has forced me to create a facade of Myself
A facade consciously crafted on the foundation of self hate and insecurity;
Oblivious to the detrimental impact of self distraction.
I’ve become a monster, projecting my insecurities towards others;
Allowing envy to overshadow confidence and bitterness override compassion,
I’m lost; searching for outward enemies when my real demon is the inner me.
