Negative Noise

Distracted by noise
Everyone’s opinion about me
It digs in and bites down
Leaving it’s mark on my mind
Scars that I can’t shake
A constant reminder of my shortcomings
Failures that I’m forced to re-examine
Had me doubting my process and myself
Accusing myself of not being good enough
All because others have made their minds up about me
Aww my youth was so naive
To believe that I cared what others thought
The trolls that people are
Mad because I was trying
Now those scars dust off
Not given a second thought
Their voices have become noise
I drown it out with music
Fuck that noise
