My feet are too big

Those great shoes would look like canoes.

I’m too fat

no one would hire me.

My memory sucks

I could never share my words.

I can’t.

I’m not good enough.

I’m not.


Seize your power!

Seize your words!

Scream them out!

Drown out self-doubt!

You are!

You are!

You ARE!

You are worthy.

You are worth it.

You are the only you.

You are the






to embrace the you

we believe in.

We believe.

We believe

in your voice:

    so empowering – but feel like there was one word missing right in between
    “I’m not.”


    like maybe something like “stop” or “enough of that” – to then transist into scream – ya know what I mean?
    But either way – dear master poetess – wonderful edifying words….

    Sometimes screaming do help to remove all the pain…

    I feel your pain and frustration.

    Nice energy in this! Not that I… or any of your readers… have ever encountered those scary, “I’m not worthy!” thoughts…. Universal!
