Doubt

After Our Greatest Fear

 

She’ll always deny

the things that push her

forward.

She’ll forever tell

herself she’s not 

good enough.

 

Even when they praise

her name,

and tell her nice things,

she claims she doesn’t

believe a word.

 

On some level,

she knows

that they are right.

Her talent is enough.

Heart as pure as gold,

eyes kind and bright.

 

But she’s afraid to admit

this to anyone

because her heart

won’t seem pure,

and her eyes

won’t look kind.

 

But he told her 

to let her light

shine,

because he hates

the way he feels.

 

And if someone so kind

can’t see her own heart,

how can he expect

to find his own?
