She looked in the water

Brown eyes reflected

Exploring her soul

Self-worth rejected

Uttering confusion and fear

Direction gone, no one to steer

Compass broken, lost at sea

Smoke signal out, only debris

Self-doubt is Captain, no intervening

Inner demons endlessly teaming

Contradicting every step of the way

Irrelevant conclusions stuck on replay

Self-doubt and assumptions arbitrary

On the same team, playing adversary

Sink or swim that’s the only choice

Express your ideas and use your voice

This life you live is a short stay

Stop playing the victim and live for today
