    I love this poem. I think I must write it out and put it by my computer whenever I’m filled with self doubt. Thank you for sharing! That phrase self-inflicted cocoons is brillant.


    • Thanks, Susanne. 🙂 I hope it keeps the self-doubt demons away.

      The phrase “self-inflicted cocoons” is what started the whole thing. It just popped into my head like a little whisper from my muse.


    • Thank you. 🙂

      This one took a long while to write, because I spent so much time looking for all the right words. The emotions I wanted to convey are hard to pin down – I’m thrilled to hear I found the write words.

    Oooh! I really liked this. Excellent word choice, especially with the small amount of words you’ve used! Well done! 😀
