apprehension and inadequacy
i almost cut my hair, saturday. but for some reason, i just didn't. i almost told my dad that artistic freedom isn't the only thing he left (with me). but for some reason, i decided against it. i almost messaged you tonight, but it's been a long time since i have. so, i decided i shouldn't. (may as well make it longer.) i almost named you   in this poem, but i think maybe that would be a bad idea.
For when your inferiority complex kicks in

enough
“I could be enough for you,” she said. He looked at her then—looked at her earnest, star-filled eyes and her wild curls spilling over her shoulders—and felt his own inadequacy. “I know,” he said. “But I can’t be enough for you.”

It doesn't bother me
I'm not pretty And I like to pretend that doesn't bother me Obsessive And I like to pretend it doesn't bother me Oh well oh well it'll be okay I'm not confident I like to pretend it doesn't bother me And I'm a doormat And I like to pretend it doesn't bother Oh well oh well it'll be okay Everything will be fine anyway I'm not ambitious And I like to pretend it doesn't bother me And I'm lonely And I like to pretend it doesn't bother me Oh well oh well it'll be okay Everything will be fine anyway Do you feel it The insecurities biting away Do you lie and lie and say You'll be okay Well come here we can lie together And act like we're just

Inadequacy and thoughtlessness
Every day it got harder, the girl that once existed was starting to fall apart day by day. At one time in her life she had been a happy child, she had co-existed easily with her surroundings. Her mind never there, her pride had never been an issue.   Sadly she had to grow up, and the pressures of society managed to break through her protection, and make her doubt her own personality, her confidence, and herself.   She had thought herself someone worth spending time with. She had thought herself someone interesting, strange but at the same time pleasant.   During this awful process of growing up she felt like she was none of this. The feelings

(The Definition of) Inadequacy
He isn't perfect, by any means. He is imperfect, the definition of inadequacy but in, actually, a beautiful way. Crooked teeth peek out from behind the flowered hills of his lips. His tongue runs along the paths of these hills, flattening the grass and crushing weeds of innocence beneath its weight. His eyes are deeply carved caverns filled with cobwebs and stalactites, they cut far into my own with sharpened glances. I am both harmed and charmed by him, Curious to explore the hidden corners of his sun-kissed skin, dotted with freckles like trails of deer tracks in the freshly settled snow. Never have I plunged my hands into unknown waters

Woefully
Once upon a time when I sank, I wouldn’t fight it; I’d let the mire of self-hatred take me into its acid embrace. But that was then; That was back when the part of me that Despised me was louder, Stronger than the me which tolerated me (because I definitely couldn’t claim to Love myself). Now I don’t take shit from the acerbic whisperings In my mind, though they still know just where to strike to inflict most Damage — Where I’m weak, Where my insecurities lie. What gave life to that part of me? What moulded it into being? Is it my inadequacy to be good, Sin-free? Is it due to being inherently Fallilble?

Reaching For More
Looking back, I can't recall when things were enough And that in itself is a sobering realization There's always been just one more step to take Yet another thing to go out and accomplish This isn't to say one shouldn't take steps forward But I've been so wrapped up in what I haven't done In who I'm not, in what I haven't acquired Why did I learn to perceive this way How can I love myself yet reinforce this inadequacy When did this endless loop of reaching begin Wading into it wasn't a conscious decision That being said, I've been stuck in it all the same Over the millennia humanity has evolved and adapted With all that I still can't mea

Inadequacy
Do you feel your idols watch you, From a cliff-face in your mind? Do their voices cloud your thoughts? Is true peace impossible to find? Past and future, they've seen it, From their lofty, eternal view, Nothing escapes their sphinx-like stare, Twin suns scorching into you. You can't meet their baleful gaze, Eyes will pierce rice-paper skin, Every action will be judged, Indulgence transforms into sin. You can never hope to match, Conquests and empires that they built, As life becomes more vicarious, You wallow in impotent guilt. Yet were these stalwarts superhuman? Or do we only remember their best? Did they create a grand illusion? Preser

My biggest fear, I have discerned since her presence has engulfed the entirety of my point of view; the total of my wealth- my biggest fears involve at times a sense of misalignment, and one of staggered health. The differences in the forces behind the speed at which we’ll melt into our prospective futures that we’ve seen, admired, chosen, desired, worked for, pined for, died for, felt; this difference could divide the ones who wish that they’d be dealt a feeling of duality becoming singularly held. But the alignment of these melt rates will most definitely be knelt upon a crux of varied pressures; a crux of varied health:
