There are thoughts in my head
That I don’t want.
“you’re not worth it”
“they all hate you”
“you are not enough”
“do you really think that they care? you’re being manipulated, and you deserve it. you
I try to ignore them,
push them away.
It’s not working.
should I even go another day?
but someone told me
“keep going,
you will be okay.
maybe not
but in some way
you will be.”
so I went on, pushed through.
will it be enough?
I dont know
for certain.
but I do know
that when times are tough
there will always be someone who knows
that I am worth it.
