Self Esteem

My

in-correctable

uncontrollable

lack of

self esteem,

I know

frustrates

the life from

you

and makes you

want to scream.

My

inconsolable

inability

to put

myself first,

I know

denies me

happiness

but guilt

to me

is worse.

  1. Beautiful. Although there’s nothing wrong with putting you in the first place and there’s no need to feel guilty about it. Maintaining a healthy balance between “you” and “the rest of the world” is the key to happiness in me opinion.

    balance is hard i think its better to put others first than put myself but as the poem says it does deny me some happiness. Love this poem and feel i really relate to it.
