Throwback Thursday Poetry: Self-Esteem

self-esteem
is what i need
i can’t get it now
screaming please
on my knees
really, really loud

can’t you see
to be free
i must feel proud
with no pride
i can’t deny
i sink to the ground

i hear lies
in my mind
i am breaking down
as i cry
i wonder why
no one cares now

with this dream
i must bring
myself to the clouds
only then
can i mend
my heart inside out
without a doubt

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
