Like blood running red

From a bullet in my head

I am my worst enemy

And I just lost a battle with me

See, it’s clear

I am the one thing that I fear

For I can only truly be free

From anything other than me

I want to do good, I know I can

But in the mirror is a man

I don’t recognize

Whom I despise

Because it’s me I’ve idolized


I’m sick of the lie

That I’ve been handed

That I’ve been branded

That the world revolves around me

It can’t be

Or else I wouldn’t be in this mess

To keep God God, I’ve learned is best

I struggle with this one

I struggle with this one everyday! But im glad to say my faith tested has been strong and I for one have found it better this far along, I don't always see it, and sometimes I fall short, but in the end the right way turns out testingly better  than I ever thought! :) great write! I feel our angst about these situations! Hugss SS
