I Try to Contest

I try to contest
This churlish voice
That drowns me out
Builds a bush around me
A screen to obscure
Any possible achievements
Brings only my failings
Into the focus space
Accomplishment and honour
Banished feelings
Beyond the long line
Of regularly listed short comings
I try to contest
My contemptuous inner voice
