My Own Worst Enemy


Stabbing myself with criticism,

Inflicting scars through judgment.


Wounded by fearful hopelessness,

As I bleed out my own confidence.


Goals are limited by negative views,

Incapable of achieving full success.


Brawling with the mental despair,

Trying to uplift a positive stance.


Also at war with a harmful world,

Fighting for a spot in civilization.


Dueling with barriers to end misery,

On a determined mission for peace.


By combating my own worst enemy,

The wounds of self-esteem can heal.
