I’m insecure

Where did my confidence go?

I’m insecure

I have no confidence in my inner core,

Always feel empty and looking for more.

Whenever I have it in a brief window of time ,

It will be lost in a moment.

I seem to have lost it a long time ago

And wonder if ever again it would show.

Where have you gone my childhood friend?

How were you snatched from my heart?

I never thought happiness would come to an end,

In such a short time torn apart.

I thought I’d grow up and have a mind of my own

That was strong and powerful.

But as time goes on, all I can find

Is that I’m more and more insecure.

Whatever I do and wherever I go

I hear a voice inside of my head

That constantly mocks my innovative flow

Making it harder to live.

I hope one day that person will hear

Their voice that I’ve heard all day.

I hope somehow there’s a possibility

That they hear themselves on replay.
