Baggage Claim


Insecurities are like a parrot on the shoulder.

A constant pecking on one’s brain,

A frequent reminder of all that you are not,

A heavy baggage that we lug around from situation to situation.

How can a fish compare with a bird?

They are both skilled in their own right.

Just as grass differs from a tree,

Though reared in the same sunlight but each have a different purpose.

Pound by pound I’m dropping my load,

Making way for my empowerment.

I’m destined for greatness,

If only you could see!
