Self Sabotage

Life is going well lately,

It’s given me inspiration to be someone.

My heart is soaring,

And my brain is racing.


My thoughts are strong,

Erratic,

Never ending.

I want something so badly,

I’m afraid of failure.


There’s only one way to avoid failing,

Self sabotage.

For I cannot be disappointed,

If my undoing is a result of my actions.

It’s so illogical, yet logical.

Incredibly foolish, yet intelligent.

When in the face of failure,

Anxiety is my undoing,

I am my own worst enemy.
