Rewiring My Brain

Why am I never enough I ask?

Everything I do has a label

I’ve attached

that I lack

I’m not fast enough

I’ll make a mistake

I’m late I’m old

I’m out of date

Right then and there

In the middle of a rant

I grab a pen

And write this chant

Interrupting a rant

Of self-criticism and judgment

Redirects my path

On my terms

A list of ten things

I like about myself

Listing one after the other

While keeping count

I am a great mother

I love to cook

I’m a loyal friend

I love a good book

I am a smart woman

I am healthy

I am courageous

I love to sing

I am strong

And finally the tenth

I say feeling better
