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’m not good enough.
Seize your power!
Seize your words!
Scream them out!
Drown out self-doubt!
You are worthy.
You are worth it.
You are the only you.
You are the
to embrace the you
we believe in.
in your voice:
so empowering – but feel like there was one word missing right in between
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….
When I performed it today, I did it as an abrupt break in the monologue of doubt-
head thrown back and a literal shout of it. Kind of an ARGGGGGG!!! kind of scream.
Sometimes screaming do help to remove all the pain…
and sometimes it’s the declaration of change.
I feel your pain and frustration.
and, I hope, encouragement?!
Nice energy in this! Not that I… or any of your readers… have ever encountered those scary, “I’m not worthy!” thoughts…. Universal!
lol I heard 2 of those phrases yesterday. I was softer in my encouragement in person. 😉
