    I just got told I was inadequate.
    But I was the only one talking
    No words filled the air
    Anxiousness opened my soul, leaned back and smiled
    A nervous beat of my heart
    A fullness of my throat
    A shortness of my breath
    With tears filling my hopeful eyes
    No straight path to success
    No crooked jump to automatic stardom
    A long and confusing journey
    To kick this self doubt

    I just got told I was inadequate.
    But I was the only one talking

    Where is the starting line?
    How do I know if I’m finished?
    Go away nervous heart
    Full throat
    Short breath
    And tears that don’t need crying
    Confidence needs somewhere to sit to lay her weary body
    She’s been walking all 27 years trying to find a place to enter

    I just got told I was inadequate.
    But I was the only one talking

    I want to experience the wholeness of her
    By looks I am sure she feels like certainty,
    Wrapped in determination
    with splashes of intelligence throughout
    full of deep long breaths
    steady
    calm
    normalcy within the heart
    no irregular beat
    body eased into this moment,
    positivity seeking me as a friend.
    she can move right in,
    that confidence.
    Evict self doubt.

    I just got told I was inadequate.
    I didn’t listen.
