Insecure (poem)

insecure

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 new day
To again have your failure shown
Disappointment marks your life
Like neon signs on the Vegas strip
Brightly laughing over your life
In a recurring nightmare trip
Maybe one day Insecure can breathe
But today Insecure suffocates
Drowning where they always fall short
Never able to make it out of today
