Ugly heads of old,

Arose in an hour all told…

He disbelieved God

In tittle and yod,*

Not fully convinced in his soul.

Mixed messages all his life,

Cutting holes from within with a knife…

Doubt of self grew

Do you hate you,

Struggling with that all your life?

The same situation again,

Filtering what gets in…

Compliment accepting

Mostly rejecting

He’s very self-critical then!

The subject’s come up before,

Not often, though, it takes the floor…

Subconscious practice

Turns the axis,

Resisting anything more.

–Jonathan Caswell

Tittle*  is a part of Hebrew writing and da yod is one of its letters of the alphabet.
