The Attacker (self-attack)

the Attacker is always there,

coming up, and

punishing me every time,

after I exhibit confidence,

after I slightly express myself,

after I speak up,

after I expose myself and shine,

he shows up and attacks me heavily.

This Attacker who lives in me.

I better stay quiet.

I better be invisible.

I better be silent, and

I better be alone.
