I Can

If someone told you that

You can’t do something,

You’re incapable, weak, nothing,

Would you do anything?

*

If they cursed you and 

Belittled you, stole from you

And doubted your abilities,

Would their opinion be true?

*

If it were your mother,

Father, sister or brother,

Some react differently than

If it were some other.

*

Some may let the criticism

Swap through their skin,

Others may use it to motivate. Why

Is it different when it comes from within?

*

Self-hate decays us 

From beneath the surface.

Like a parasite, draining us 

Until we feel worthless.

*

But if we disown this

Negativity – “it’s not me,

I’m better than this, I can” – 

Then we can be free.

*

Free from self-imposed restrictions,

Free from mental illness and self-hate,

Free to achieve and to grow,

Free to flourish and open the gate

*

To our future, reaching 

Beyond all limitation. Start

Now, separate the hate from 

Yourself. Find your heart.
