Is your inner critic getting you down? Me too, sometimes. One day when my inner critic was being particularly obnoxious I wrote a poem about it, and here it is.
THE INNER CRITIC
My inner voice, he is so rude,
Into my thoughts he does intrude.
He feels quite free to speak his mind,
He denigrates and is unkind.
His barbs are sly, his tongue is sharp,
He never fails to hit his mark.
He knows just how to hurt me most,
To sabotage his hapless host.
My heart is torn, my soul does bleed,
Is there no one to intercede?
Recently while listening to the radio I heard a song and I thought, that would be a really great song to sing to my inner critic when he gets too obnoxious. Maybe it will help you too.
