Poem: Questions…

A black woman in solitude and peace

I’m speaking about my confidence

Saying I’m going to change then do the opposite

Why can’t my brain be dominant?

My heart makes a turn, and now my whole mind suffering

Are my feelings too strong? What am I doing wrong?

Will I ever be happy with my well-being and the skin that I’m in?

Will I ever find happiness within?

Will I ever learn that I am good by myself?

I guess it’s true, loving myself is a part of being alone

I hope ‘23 has something way better for me

Because my tear ducts about to give up on me

Words help for the moment, but somehow don’t stick to the surface

I just want to be freed from this prison called unconfident

Hopefully, my time is getting shortened, cause this place has never been nice to my sanity
