GC Poetry: Insecurities // Seif Salem.

What is it, that you doubt, dislike, despise about yourself?
Is it your shape, wit, speech, or maybe a lack of health?
How long do you think of it before it steers your mind away?
Is it a minute, an hour, a day, or perhaps all the way?
Welcome to the inhumane human society that shapes up such insecurities,
A haunting side of life disguised as unbearable ideologies,
We all face such, at least periodically, internally,
Nonetheless, we seem to hide them, hurt, but intentionally,
Nothing can ever abort them, they are labels printed on us,
Unable to be disposed of, they are only available to discuss,
A simple look in the mirror or a thought, not only reflects an image,
There is reflection of pain, a mere judgmental scrimmage,
As the words of a hundred can partially relieve the issue,
Alike, a simple word of a single loved one is chiefly a virtue,
But an exclusive look, a negative comment about the matter,
And the ship goes wreck, confidence and esteem shatter,
However, one can actually turn the insecurity around,
Not necessarily through self-alteration, however hard it might sound,
But through sharing. Owing to the suffer of all others,
People will understand, push you forwards, like sisters and brothers,
It will not solve, but weaken the insecurity trapped in your mind,
Then eventually through applauding and praise, the idea will fade to be left behind.
