True Self

by Chasity Gaines

In the wide expanse of the mind,
The innermost thoughts of Individuality

Internal dialogue of self loathing
A constant barrage of human flaws
beyond control, a reminder

of every wrong move,
misstep, blunder
Every wrong word, look,

and deed. A struggle
to balance the conscience and subconscious. A struggle

not to lose oneself in the wide
expanse of the mind,
keeping the rope tied

tightly each time one
dives into their true self.
