I didn’t do so well at school, dropped out of university 

Forfeited my degree

Feeling like I’d failed

That I’d never achieve what I wanted to be

I stumbled through form job to job

Just to make ends meet

Never realising my full potential

Never really feeling complete

Always feeling somehow broken

Unable to compete

Never feeling qualified 

To say the words, to speak

I didn’t trust myself

Or believe in who I was 

Always feeling somewhat lost

Caught up in self doubts claws

It’s taken time

I still struggle with self belief

But everyday I’m closer

As I find comfort and relief

Relief from all the pressure 

I bequeath upon myself

Allow myself the time and grace

To be kind and heal my health 🙏🏼
