A poem written for a close friend who is struggling with insecurity issues, due to her thinking too far into how she looks. I wrote this in about 5-10 minutes, so it's not brilliant, but it is dedicated to her!

I wish I had a disguise,

To rebuff that questioning look in their eyes,

As it pierces straight through me,

Could I be on show for all to see?


My self esteem is so low,

As everyday is another heavy blow,

All I want is change,

Why do I have to feel so strange?


Insecurity is like an infection,

That makes the minor things hurt most,

This is simply deception,

But why am I its host?

This is wonderful...I think you are my favorite author I have found here yet...and while I may be new, I don't think that opinion will change any time soon. I love your work because every poem I have read, I feel the same way.
Obviously, me being a girl, that means I have to reverse a few things so it's not weird, but I feel the same way. I can really feel the emotion in the poem, because you express it so profoundly. And because I know exactly what those emotions feel like. You are great.

Thankyou so much! I'll definitely be checking out your work soon enough!:) I'm so glad you liked it and can relate to it so well... I find that only when I really feel an emotion can I put it into words. Thank you once more for the comment and understanding the poem so well, you're the kind of person I was writing it for, just like my friend whom it was for!:)
