a cry

why, oh why must my confidence be so fragile?
why, oh why can the smallest thing shake me?
why, oh why do I lack this strength within?

how, oh how can I change this?

many years of
   learning
cannot be
   unlearnt
in a flash

and I struggle on
   with tears in my eyes
      trying to believe
         that there is anything
            in me of worth

please don’t be mad

  1. Such doubts, I know, are difficult to ignore. Such questions that plague our sense of self. There is pain in vulnerability, yes, but I believe there is strength in the very nature of a soul that is at least willing to ask such questions. I would prefer to doubt myself from time to time, rather than live in ignorant assurance that I am somehow superior, infallible. Beyond questioning.
