Insecure (poem)

Insecure excels at being mediocre A master of being plain A talent for being talentless Insecure is in it's domain A wallflower struggling to break free A baby bird ready to fly As risk looms forward dangerously Pushing Insecure to hide Stay where it's safe Stick to what is known Tomorrow will be a brand … Continue reading Insecure (poem)

One moment he was beloved by all those around him.  In the very next moment he was reviled.  How quickly and carelessly, she realized, that some turned their back.
