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
