Underdog ~ Poem

Underdog~ Poem

It will catch you, hold you captive

The truth

And it won’t set you free this time

That you’re not enough

you’re not enough.

always trying to make up

wearing makeup

to hide the flaws that make you

That make you not enough

Underdog. All you’ll ever be.

Under not over.

You’ll never get over

The high bar to surpass. The low self-esteem.

So why do you even try?

Underdog. Don’t lie.

Why let your ego get a bruise

cuz winners can’t lose

Until they do

then there’s only you

your moment to shine

Underdog. And in the end you’ll be just fine.

~~~Prompt~~~
