Insecurity Knocking at my Door

You worry what they may think, will you allow your ship to sink?

Insecurity is still here

Dripping poisonous thoughts of fear

You worry what they may think

Will you allow your ship to sink?

Look deep down within you

Allow the fear to pass through

Remember all you have been taught

Grab hold of those fear based thoughts

Now place those fears on a balloon

And send them up to the moon

Now dance freely in the air

Focus your thoughts on that which you care

When insecurity starts to creep in

Grab it and throw it in the bin

Others will always behave the same

Why respond with being too tame?

It’s time to step up and love you

You deserve your spirit to shine through

When insecurity comes knocking at your door

Face it with love and tell it no more

Now ask it what does it need

To heal and stop the bleed

When it responds that it needs you

Reassure it ‘we’re seeing this through’

Take that part of yourself by the hand

Go for a walk across the sand

Love you like you needed back then

When you felt like you didn’t have a friend

Give it the support that it needs

Show it the pain no longer needs to bleed

Tell it is safe to let go

And that you no longer need to feel low

Ask it to open the door

So that the tears can flow some more

Lovingly caress your head

Notice your heart no longer feels like lead

You sit up and notice you are lighter

Your spirit starts to radiate that bit brighter

Remember, if insecurity comes knocking at your door

Take it by the hand and love it some more
