Short Poems

1. “Inferiority Complex”
I feel small and inadequate
In the shadow of those that shine
I try to stand tall and confident
But my self-doubt is hard to decline

2. “Impostor Syndrome”
Surrounded by success and skill
I can’t help but feel like a fake
As if my accomplishments are nil
And my effort is a mistake

3. “Comparison Trap”
I compare myself to others
And always come up short
I envy their beauty and talent
And feel like an imposter caught

4. “The Mirror Lie”
The reflection staring back at me
Is distorted by my own mind
I see flaws and imperfections
That only I seem to find

Medium Poems

1. “The Voices in My Head”
I hear them whisper in my ear,
Telling me all my faults so clear.
“You’re not good enough,” they say,
You’ll never make it all the way.

I try to ignore these voices inside,
But they continue to relentlessly chide.
My insecurities take over my mind,
Leaving me feeling lost and confined.

But I must remind myself every day,
That these voices are not here to stay.
I am strong and worth so much more,
Than what these insecurities have in store.

2. “Mirror, Mirror”
I stand before the mirror each day,
Analyzing every detail in dismay.
My flaws seem to jump out at me,
And I can’t help but feel like I’m not pretty.

I wish I could see what others do,
A beautiful person shining through.
Instead, I am stuck in my own mind,
Wishing for confidence that’s hard to find.

But one day, I hope to look in the glass,
And see the beauty that others amass.
For I am more than what I appear,
And my insecurities will soon disappear.

3. “The Monster Within”
Insecurity is a monster that lurks within,
Feasting on our doubts and causing chagrin.
It grows and grows with every fear,
Until it’s all we can see and hear.

It gnaws at our confidence and self-esteem,
Making it hard to chase our dreams.
But we must confront this monster so great,
Before it determines our fate.

We must learn to love ourselves for who we are,
And let our true selves become the shining star.
For we are more than the monster within,
And our insecurities will ultimately give in.

Long Poems

The Perpetual Anxiety

Why does my heart tremble,
With every word spoken to me?
My mind can’t help but assemble,
A labyrinth of insecurities.

The slightest gesture sets me off,
Leaping over the precipice of doubt,
And I’m not sure I can jump back,
Back to the confidence I had throughout.

My mind is a black hole that swallows
Every compliment paid to me,
Drowning in a sea of sorrow,
I can’t help but constantly disagree.

I’m trapped in my own mind,
Where nothing is ever enough,
Stuck in a perpetual bind,
Of self-doubt and emotional rough.

I know that they say confidence is key,
And I try to wear it like armor,
But sometimes it’s just too hard to see,
Anything other than self-harbor.

The scale is always tipped against my favor,
And my mind races at an unhealthy pace,
I wonder if I’ll ever truly savor,
The taste of feeling ok with my own face.

But until then I’ll keep on fighting,
Training myself to acknowledge,
That sometimes the voice inside me,
Is just a ticking, irrational clock.

So here’s to battling my insecurities,
A relentless enemy at times,
A daily, uphill trek of pursuits,
Of acceptance and kindness aligned.
