Knock, knock.
Who’s on my door?
Oh, I wish I had known your trick before.
I would not have let you slip in,
not let all of this begin
and letting you become my biggest sin.
You came to me at early age,
giving me answers I needed to hear.
So I gladly lend you my ear.
Don’t trust her, they said.
Don’t trust her, before it is too late.
But late it was and I had made a new friend.
Someone I thought who’d really understand,
what’s going on in my mind and I felt no fear,
until you showed up
and made it all disappear.
You had fun with this little game
Of driving me insane.
Playing tricks to my mind.
How could I let you slip inside?
I was thankful back then,
for you being there.
But that was way back,
I don’t need you anymore.
You had your highest score.
You had your fun.
Now go off and be gone!
Don’t trust them, you said,
but trust them I must.
They’ll hurt you, you said.
And I took you with my to bed.
You are a homeless, rotten creature,
how could I ever let you become my teacher?
How could I listen to you like all the time?
Overseeing what could be mine.
You hold me back and made me shy.
Making me ask why, why, why?
Why do people like me,
if they can’t see me like you do?
You kept telling me lies.
Played around with my eyes.
Made me scared and leery.
I am so weary!
You sneak around inside,
finding new places to hide.
You appear when you see everything’s fine,
just to have air to breathe and to kill off some time.
It’s strange for me to believe,
someone could actually like me for me being me.
You ruin my life!
And I gave you the power.
I wish I could get rid of you,
like of dirt in a shower.
Helpful you are,
when you are little and controlled.
But not if you keep me in a golden cage,
driving me made with your own rage.
I want to live and you need to leave.
Not being my happiness thief.
I’ve found trust and strength there’ll be.
I’ll become my own guarantee.
Ruler of my own destiny.
I will be the player, the master, the hero.
I'm gonig to reduce you to zero.
You had your time and you had your fun,
now get out and be gone!
There's no place anymore for you,
nothing more you could do.
Hey, I got hurt,
even though you were there.
Probably even more,
then if I didn't share,
my love, my life, my time with you.
I'm over it. We are through.
Happiness I want and happy I'll be,
I'll get rid of you, my little enemy.
I'm not scared of experiencing some pain,
but all your attemps of controlling me are in vain.
Oh, Mr. Doubt,
now get out!

    I could imagine a little music video in Tim Burton style with an ugly little creature (Mr. Doubt) and a shy girl/boy (the speaker). I wish you best of luck to live on without Mr. Doubt. Will he be gone forever. And still... everyone has his/her own Mr. Doubt to carry with them. He musn't take control over our lives. He doesn't have the right to! :)

    It's beautiful. :3 Great poem! <3 I hope Mister Doubt leaves soon. The Kathy I know is a great person and doesn't deserve to be tortured by him.
