Poem: A Question of Confidence

image

Look at us
Beautifully damaged
Strong together
In our weaknesses
Our insecurity
Gives us hope

Try to create
To build
Amongst the scum and the filfth
For ignorance
We combat it
Yet it rules us
Surrounds us

Questions
Distrustful
Even among ourselves
I doubt
Hard and heavy
Like a stone
Inside
What am I doing?
Who do I hurt?

So alone
So long
Against the world
Now it is us
Dreaming
Hopeful
To fall to ruin?

What feels
Like beginnings
Can only result
In ends
