and the rest is your imagination

When my sirens call

Whenever I try not 
to think my thoughts 
are becoming the loudest.

My sirens appear, 
their deafening chants 
dim my sentiments, 
they captivate my being,
through a bullhorn they 
evoke sheer inferiority
I cannot defy.

I demean myself
again and again and 
more and more, 
I am not worth 
anything, to no one.
I am inferior.

Fighting the sirens 
is fighting myself and
every day my old self
succumbs their drowning 
calls a little more.

and the rest is your imagination
