“You’re not good enough”
Is the one sentence you should
Never tell yourself.
Hi. I’ve been struggling with this my whole life. It’s like I’ll never be able to convince myself. I feel like my poetry is at a decline. I feel as if nothing I write is good. I couldn’t tell you the amount of “drafts” &  private poems I have on here just because I’m afraid.
Afraid of ridicule.
Afraid of hating myself more.
Afraid of everything.

They say the home is where the heart is,
But all that's left in my chest
Is an **** mess, a vacant nest.
Another day, another stress.
Feeling like the prize isn't worth the
Quick something.
I wanted to keep it going.
But didn't want it to feel forced.
Last line had me sold.

You dug your own grave.
Now you're upset because it's
Too deep to get out.

Lying to myself.
Can't seem to escape this ****.
Feeling overwhelmed.

When I am a ghost.
Those that weren't around, will say
They were there the most.
Where were you when I needed you most?
Only around for the good times.
the champagne,
And the toast.
