Inner voice

February 12, 2019

Self-confidence is fodder food,

for fear to gorge off all day.

If thoughtful words are never rude,

your worst fears will fade away.

Doubt can be your enemy,

inner voice you dread to hear.

Listen not to words of doubt;

they follow you everywhere!

Instead be confidant when speaking;

care less of what others think!

Your courage will keep on creeping,

once you erase those words that stink!

If your speech is filled with misery,

then phrases will hurt all other ears.

Be sure the answer must lie internally,

it’s your heart that touches your peers.

Your thoughts thrive on your creativity,

words are life through your own eyes.

Forget what others say instinctively,

for the shallow can only speak lies.
