Guilty saying “I”

I feel guilty saying “I”

and I don’t know why,

maybe because it draws attention to me

and people will look and see

what might disappoint them.

I feel guilty saying “I”

and I don’t know why,

the word is highlighted in my mind

it gets underlined

like it’s there more than necessary.

I feel guilty saying “I”

and now I have an idea why,

it makes me think of me

which is more difficult than it should be

no matter how much I try.

Thank you for reading! 😊 I have wanted to share this poem for some time and I guess now just felt right so I hope you could connect with it (at the same time I don’t because I hate to think of others feeling this way too but know that you’re not alone 💞). Take care and have a lovely day 😘


  1. I know what you mean… “I” often feels selfish… There was a time that I felt like that, when I also felt very insecure… Now “I” feels stronger and legit… xoxo Sarah

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only person who has felt this way, hopefully I’ll have that mindset one day too it sounds very empowering. Thank you so much for reading lovely! 💞
