I Am Trying

I know there's something great in me,
Something I struggle to find.
The days and months keep passing
As I lie here, stuck in my own mind.

Always looking for ways to improve myself, 
But I struggle to take that first step.
I often wonder if this is it for me
Or if I'm stuck in my regret.

I try to hide my insecurities
Because the worry is just too much,
But they wind up shooting out of me
with every passing touch.

So today I write this poem,
to see what you might say.
Any words of wisdom
Could help my soul someway.
