VERSE| A SELFCARE NOTE

You know that tiny little thought 
That forms inside your head
The one that nags and corners you
When you least expect?

That atomic little notion which
Makes you doubt yourself
A hazy inkling barely there
Now sits big upon the shelf

You try to look the other way
From that space inside your mind
But your racing, tearing brain has left
Your willpower behind

And so you stare at the thought
Treacherous, stinging and sly
Of how you could have done better
Of how lacking was your try

The tiny speck of self doubt
Grows gargantuan in size
As it festers in your head
The truth hidden behind the lies

Put up your guard, don’t be afraid
To not see it at all
Know its savage purpose
Don’t let it spread its pall

So when that nagging little thought
Creeps in out of the blue
Face it only when you can
With kindness, grace and truth.
