Am I hurt or overreacting?

Updated: Feb 14, 2020

I used to write stupid love poems when I was 14

I used to think how deeply hurt I am.

And now that I am wiser

I want to give advice

to younger baby self.

You’re only you for one life.

You waste it on self-hatred and contempt

and negative emotions

on doubtfulness,

self hurt, starvation

and restriction.

So now you try to fix yourself?

They are not worth it.

Or is it you?
