A Lack of Self Esteem – Written September 2008 (Aged 33)

A Lack of Self Esteem

my anger towards you,
i fear,
it will never truly subside
it is the way you dig
and the way you are so snide
it is the way,
that when responsibility finds you
you always try and hide

but then,
you are just a human being
whose self belief
has developed a significant lean
you are just someone
crippled by your own self esteem
that dislike of yourself
that lack of self respect
is probably such a personal mess

James Garratt – September 2008
