Cover My Ears From Inside

A refugee from words that tear me down
Show each mistake that I have ever made
Reminds me and always forgets
Anything and everything good that I might do
I’ve heard it’s protective to stop me from getting hurt
To make sure that I stay strong
But this frame that I am beat against
Has way too many lashes etched into it
I don’t think this tough love is doing the trick
Doubt and recrimination breed
With these scathing words from my head
