INSECURITY :( [Thursday poetry rally week 30]



Everyday in some part of our lives,

Insecurity is faced day and night.

A boy giving the eye arouses insecurity,

We hurry away without any delay.

A crowded bus arouses insecurity,

By a stranger’s touch or a sudden hiss.

A few accidents arouses insecurity,

Our confidence we doubt for our chances of safety.

A step into a new place arouses insecurity,

Flashing random thoughts thro’ your mind.

Many people into your relationship arouses insecurity,

Breaking the trust and faith of your life partner to be.

Your first step outside home arouses insecurity,

Of what new experiences the world might bring.

There’s so much insecurity spread around us,

To overcome it will be a lot of fuss.

Insecurity in our lives is such a miserable mess,

It takes a long time to go no matter how hard the “MOVE ON” button we press.

  1. I see this in many women in passing. Often I feel that I have done something off putting to them and feel self conscious…I guess that we all have our own problems that we face inside.
    I watch people in passing and wonder watch their stories are, often just wondering what would cause them to do or act the way they do. That one unique thing that got my attention in the first place. Like lizard tattoo lady, or too fly white cowboy nerd, or whipped puppy girl. we all have names in my world it creates memories that I share and it gives me experiences to take home to my family. I only wish that it was realized that 99% of the time people are not even thinking about them when they are a stranger. Insecurity is good for security but truly terrible for personal growth. Excellent Subject and great perspective!

    Oh man, crowded buses really do make people insecure. It’s the perfect place to find the real creepers lol. Thing is, its hard to not be insecure with all of the other insecure people disrupting your sense of security. –__– It’s like they can’t just suffer alone lol.

  23. Insecurity.. oh, yes.. I can relate, DF.. a lovely poem this..!

    my rally poem is here:

  24. insecurity in emotions, insecurity of rejection, insecurity about life itself……And when those insecurities come true and take hold of your life, you are left with nothing but your broken dreams and unfulfilled wishes……
    Anyways, can I also present a poem for the rally?
    It’s here:
