All of us feel every now and then

Inadequate, imperfect, just rotten

The world sends reminders in myriad ways

Some subtle, some blatant, each of them says

There is a measure you do not stand up to

There is  so much more that you should do..

Social media has the remarkable power

To constantly keep all your grapes sour

So even though self-assured you may be

There are bound to be feelings of inadequacy


These feelings that haunt us off and on

Have entire industries spawned-

For instance, if women all over were to decide

Their present bodies were objects of pride

Not in need of alteration of any kind

Millions would go bankrupt, you might find

Billions of dollars are spent each year

Based on feelings of inadequacy and fear

Unfortunately, money can never buy

Feelings of self-worth, even if you try

Avoiding the tangled web of comparison

Is something we all need to learn

So that we keep insecurity at bay

As we live our lives from day to day..
