The lies you tell yourself
are the only ones
that have the power
to destroy your
the lies you’re told
external to you, from without
to within
a line-of-sight trajectory
are easily deflected
if you know
they are lies…but
if they match what you
already tell yourself:
you’re not good enough
you’re stupid
you’re ugly
useless &
they land and stick and
enough of them
will form into the walls
used to protect
the outside world
when the only truth
any of us have
is that
they, those outside
of us
are the absolute
least qualified
to say who we are
the truth
the only
is you.

Believe. Go. Do.
