Underneath

Underneath

A Poem by Violet Ray

Underneath my skin lie these dreadful insecurities
It's like putting on a show where everybody is watching me
Every move I make
There's always someone to judge
Even when I feel high
There's always something to make me feel low

Underneath my skin lie these dreadful insecurities
Hiding away in the dark
It's like someone is in control of me
Pushing me back as I watch my dreams slip away
Stuck on the fact, once I let go I'll never get it back

Underneath my skin lie these dreadful insecurities
Thoughts running through my head like
"This is too much"
"You can't do it"
"Just give up"
Putting myself down
When all I want to do is step up

And Because of these insecurities that lie underneath my skin
Ill never be
What I've always dreamed of

Self doubt and insecurities can be crippling. They can keep us from fulfilling our potential. However, they can also be the driving force pushing us to overcome and succeed.

NOTES: I think some of the longer lines might be better broken into two or more lines.

Very well described!!!! It is a horrible feeling, that sense of our 'darkness' being visible to all. I know it well. It makes me want to hide away so that no-one can see how incapable I am. But the trick is to remember that they are only beliefs we have about ourselves and therefore can be changed to something more positive.
A good honest poem. I like your ability to describe your real emotions. It really does resonate!

That's nice, I feel like this sometimes, I just give up sometimes you know, it's not good, but then except when or if we need a break, but then we won't get the results we hope for unless we go for it, whatever we going for, when we know and can define it specifically maybe that is when we succeed or get the best results, not sure but I will know when I hear what do you make of that
