I own this thing called Self-Doubt by Adri Buys

Poem

You look at me
with dimmed eyes
perhaps I made my burden
too heavy to bear
Soul dragging, feet slumping
A bewildered run
to not meet the eye of mine
Hazy fog dances within
the once bright smile
now all that is left
a crippling unease
to try and make
the awkward seems normal
I never could find
a diamond in the rough
that would ease the edges
alongside mine
somehow I always stay behind
unpolished and rejected
a little more bruised
