Mental barriers

by Em (marmite)   Mar 8, 2018

This mind of mine;
mine precisely; is imprisoned
imprisoned by lack
lack of self esteem
esteem low
low self respect
respect is earned
earned from others
others who hurt
hurt you with no thoughts
thoughts for feelings
feelings which break souls
souls become fragile

fragile minds

minds imprisoned
