Caught in a Web

I’m tangled up in all my phobias;
I can’t escape how I am.

I can’t run away from myself
because my shadow haunts me.

I’ve become trapped by succumbing
to every whim and temptation.

Now I’m a slave to my desires,
bound by all my worries.

My fears ensnared me into
a maze of complacency.

I have no hope of release.
