The Truest Words

By Millicent Sykes

The ones that cut deep, to the core

The words we say to ourselves when no one is listening

Words, phrases that our inner being attempts to dispel

A judgement we hold and hope no one sees

A message our behavior attempts to prove wrong

When echoed by others, our insecurity is activated

Those triggers we try so hard to counter and dissolve

(Sometimes with luck, other times with disdain of its presence)

“What do you mean I am not perfect?”

“No way I am faulty, I have no flaws I have banished them to the land of no existence”

Purity, being angelic, being sadistic.. these are perceived character flaws which are curable

Maybe… depends on your goals, dreams, and vision

What is it you actually need?

Let’s start there…

Let’s accept we need others and see how things change

I acknowledge I need you!

Do you need me?
