Self Doubt

Mr. Not

I help people I don't like
simply to be nice

I look at others
just to compare myself

I judge people I don't know
because I'm jealous

I watch people success
While I fail my classes

I see friendships
While I'm alone

I watch people choose others over me
And I don't do anything about it

I imagine myself in a dream world
And talk to myself

I am my only company
I am the only one I can trust

Yet I know I'm foolish
I know I'm being petty

But my friends all leave me
And I distance myself

I feel like crying
Because I know I'm not enough

I say "I'm sorry"
even though I'm not

People don't like me
And that makes me self doubt

    Oh, Mr.Not; this is a riveting read. The doubting of self is balanced by your internal gyroscope. Of course we know that we are not perfect, but our identity is not who others say we are. This is a thought provoking poem with much personal meaning. Thanks for sharing.
