We seem to have this awful habit

Of fighting what’s best for us

Then kicking the dirt

With nasty words

When nothing goes right

We indulge in what we think we want

Think we need

Throw away discipline

Stand shocked among the ruins

We’re our own best enemy

Look at your reflection with bold eyes

Don’t blink away your shame

Raise your defiant, trembling fist

And shatter you to pieces

Be stronger.
