Poem -

Hate Me

I'm not lying when I tell you I hate myself

I don't want your reassuring words or superficial compliments

This is not just a physical battle

But a mental war

I draw my sword

Do you know what it's like to want to be alone, but you're stuck with everything that you hate...

Cutting and dissecting every word, action and look

I raise my shield to block a blow

Maybe I should let the blood flow

 A person you despise as you look in the mirror. 

Nothing seems clearer

I will be fighting my closes enemy

So let the fires rage 

As I disengage

Very empowering, as you accepted your defeat..I can so relate to this, as I often wonder if so one can peel back the layers of reflection, to a time where being clueless held a simpler form, there wasn't a need to look away😊

Smiles we're innocent back then😉
