Yes, I am my own worst enemy
Sabotaging myself at the drop of a hat
It’s a habit so deeply ingrained
Within me that I don’t even realize
When I’m doing it
But, there are moments
Those rare moments
When I step back and I can see
I’m not where I want to be
Only then can I change reality
I’m able to squash self-sabotage
And take a step forward
Changing the moment, the day
My life
Though I know I can step back
I usually don’t
So caught up in the drama of it all
If only…
If only I remembered
And always took that step back
