POEM : Nothing
You tell yourself it’s nothing
It’s just a blip
But if confidence is a tap
Then insecurities start to drip
You don’t know what brought it on
But in a moment, everything can flip
Insecurities get worse
It’s a got a firm grip
One hand on your waist- joint at the hip
But your ego defends itself- gives it plenty of lip
But when beauty is judged on the outside, who cares about the pip?
But you’re smart
Full of plenty of quips
But if life is a tapestry
Then you’re got a few rips
