Ah! The Perfectionist!
My least favorite of the seven
Her and I have been quite intimate, you know?
I always believe her lies
She knows I want success
She knows I hate failure
She knows how to use that all too well
The Inner Controller
He’s a tricky one.
At first he seemed like a friend
“Helping” me control my impulses.
But then his “guidance” became… overbearing
“Don’t eat this!” or “Don’t do that!”
It’s becoming too much
He never lets me relax
All things he calls me
Maybe I’d work a little harder if he was little kinder
The Underminer has a strange way of keeping me safe
She hates to hear my heart break
She can’t stand to see me get hurt
So when she smells danger, she goes on the offense
Striking my confidence
Jabbing at my self esteem
Opportunities slip away when she’s involved
The worst is The Destroyer
And there’s a reason I believe this
Have you ever felt like not living?
Have you ever felt worthless?
Have you ever felt unbearable shame?
That his him going to work
And I avoid him at all costs
The Guilt Tripper capitalizes off of the others
She’s much more clever than her sisters and brothers
She feeds off of the doubt of my choices
And works best when she can hide in the sea of voices
Whether it be poor decision or an indecision
She executes her trip traps with utmost precision
I must tread lightly
The Molder is constantly mad at me
He wants me to fit in with what he believes is right
With the values I grew up with
He believes his work of art isn’t finished yet
But you know what?
Neither is mine
And that’s just fine
