Words: Add All Basic Being Bit Determined Hidden Knew Lean Lurking Measured More Show Sneer Started There Tin Tired Treat Wobble Work
My effort below
I’m tired of feeling rejected.
The lurking depression, basically hidden but measured by how easily I feel hurt.
It all adds up. No matter how determined I am to show strength, I wobble.
I’m not alone. Many of us feel this desperation; if people only knew.
They say, it is not about you. We don’t treat you any differently.
You look at me, at my cushy world and sneer.
You don’t understand how much energy it takes to overcome the negative self-talk.
At work all you can see is how unreasonable I’m being because I’m tough. My expectations are high, of us all. Not just you.
Bit by bit I need to prove there is more to me than the lean offering I share.
I wear the tin badge of self-appointed sheriff, started so long ago; first line of defence.
