Insecurity – Original Poem


You laugh in the mirror as you cry inside

A double edged sword piercing you from every angle

Your pain, a permanent tattoo etched in your skin as a reminder of the marriage of depression and soul

Tortured, battered, weakened by the warriors of darkness

Every morning a countdown to another night

Every glimmer of hope buried before it can grow

Smiles hurt

So much pain now

So much screaming internalized

The screeching noise inside your head never stops; it only gets louder and more penetrating

All you want is to silence the pain

Just stop now

Make it end

Make it go away


You don’t want to die but it feels right

There is no direction to turn; no place to call home; no beating heart to love you back

Close your eyes and pray; pray for a day of quiet peace
