They came calling

Old Worthless came a knocking today
As always, he had a lot to say
I commanded him to take a hike
Before he got in a single strike.

Up behind him old Nothing came
After my heart, again she took aim
But I had on my armor today
It deflected her crippling words away.

Then Useless appeared right next to her
Opening his mouth to begin his slur
I had on my helmet to deflect his voice
I put Useless in my past because that is my choice.

Next Unlovable showed her ugly old face
Intending to shame me and cause disgrace
But I too had a weapon and fired the first shot
Self-love struck a mortal wound, putting an end to her rot.

Out jumped Unwanted holding a bomb
Determined to destroy me with a quick lob.
But now I have friends to deflect that bomb away
And spoil his attempts on this and every day.

Then Blame came up and began to yell
Selling it hard to shatter my shell.
I pulled out another weapon I’d hid at my side
Truth is the weapon with which old Blame died.

Lastly, Weak came along singing the same old song
He’s scratched out that same tune my whole life long.
I sang back to him, I’ve just destroyed all your friends.
He disappeared in silence and here today’s tale ends.

This formed in my mind a few minutes ago when I looked at my reminder note that said; I AM NOT WORTHLESS!!!

No human being is worthless. Shame on every parent or caregiver and any other significant other person who says such horrible things to a child. Feeling a little bit powerful today. I hope you all are too. Power to make changes is a new and wonderful thing I finally see in myself. Thank-you everyone who helped me to feel like this today.
