Too much pressure
surrounded by expectations
of people who always degrade you.

The world is consumed by monsters
who try to tear you down,
Feeding off your lack of confidence.

Every time you fall,
the grotesque creatures feel as though,
they have won.

You must realize
every fall will make you stronger,
every battle will make you braver,
and every ignorant comment
that has left a scar on your heart
will remind you;
You are better than those monsters could ever be.

the "monsters" in this piece are the girls, or even guys who feel the need to push down others to make themselves greater.
