Gideon’s Challenge


do they come from?
The ugly feelings
the disproportionate
internal reactions
awaken and stir.
They hear derision
and soak it in
take it deep
weld it into spears
sharp and deadly
to pierce the soul.
How do the words
of one stranger
manage to outweigh
the many
that know you better?

One thought on “Gideon’s Challenge

  1. It’s one of those shadow things love. Where you take the nastiness and allow it to bite out of long habit with your parents or self sabotage. Both apply yeah?

    But you can always count on me to be here to show you the light baby. To remind you that you are amazing
