I look in the mirror but I don’t see my face.

It’s something else talking my place.

A demon taking over me…

I hear stories about the monsters that hide under kid’s beds,

This one is a little closer.

Voices In my head.

I look around in fear,

But no one else is ever there.

But I know I’m not alone.

No matter how empty this room is…

And sometimes I can’t help but think,

I’m never going to be the me, that I used to be.

I’m never going to be strong.

I’m always wrong.

And I can’t get the confidence I need.

Too many monsters being mean.

Too many demons inside me…

We tend to criticize ourselves more than anyone else does. So this is just my thoughts on what is happening in those moments we are judging ourselves. I hope you can find some relation to it, even in the simplest way.
