The Inner Critic And Social Comparison

The Self-Examiner

You can undermine yourself with what can be called
Critical truths about yourself that are based on
Feelings of inferiority, but any
Fair minded jury would reject this completely.
Even your own worst enemy can’t come upon
What you can. You’ve an internal critic installed.

Feeling inferior comes from your measuring
Yourself against someone else or just everyone.
It is a false conception. We each are unique.
At least in some areas all persons are weak.
All are good at some things, and without exception
Each of us has to this earth a whole lot to bring.

Many people believe they’re so inferior
That they simply can’t live with themselves. It’s a shame
That they must be superior at any cost.
Haphazard are the gains, and much of them is lost
While attempting to play in such a lethal game.
They are trapped and controlled by the way they keep score.

Inferiority and its weak counterpart,
Superiority, are both of the same coin.
Counterfeit are their essence. They are illusions.
Recognizing your own worth and how the world runs,
You will come up with solutions straight from the groin
To get your inner critic aligned with your heart.
