Only One || Poem

Am I the only one that feels this way?

It sure feels that way.

It feels like every day is spent feeling worthless and searching for grace.

As I contemplate all of these lies that I face,

My body is overpowered with pain.

I go a few months without anxiety,

And then it hits me as soon as I feel safe.

What's wrong with me today?

Why do I feel so insecure?

Why do I stress about everything I'm bad at?


Am I the only one that feels this way?

It sure feels that way.

It feels like I am suffocating with doubt.

I am trying to breathe in a chaotic world.

You'd think that after months of therapy,

I would be able to take this breastplate off,

but alas, it stays.

What's wrong with me today?

Why do I feel so discouraged, gloomy, and gray?

Why do I worry about what others think?

Why am I my own worst critic?


Am I the only one that feels this way?

It sure feels that way.

I wish I spent more energy relying on the only one that can ease my pain.

I wish I believed the truths that people tell me rather than the lies of the enemy.

And yet, here I am drowning in self-doubt.

Does anyone else feel this way?
