SoCS ~Solo act #SoCS


Those demons of doubt once again rear their heads

Insecurity bubbles up to drown you in dread

Mirrors become horrid in your slanted glance

Neglecting your true self yet another chance

Positivity with peers is a daily charade

Thoughts gone awry are ones naturally made

You fight to be stable in this emotional war

The mere act of living is a weakening chore

Your only defense in surviving is preoccupation

Silencing the sadness with escaping provocation
