I feel like a burden
to the people
I am around,
a liability.

I wouldn’t wish myself
on anyone
and I feel bad
for the man
who ends up with me.

This is what goes
through my mind.

I don’t know
why I have
such negative thoughts.

And I fear
I can never change them.

I am so afraid
that I will not let anyone in
because I think
they will reject me
when they know how I think.
