thoughts within me

Archive for August 2017

How do I stop hating myself,
for things I’ve never done,
I know I should have,
I could have,
I would have,
had I begun.

How do I stop these thoughts,
they build on their own,
and keep running
in my head,
while I sit still,
feeling undone.

How do I stop hating myself,
for things I’ve never done,
when I face a challenge,
my mind keeps shouting,
run run, run away,
run run.

How do I get off my arse,
and make myself more useful,
be a propelling fuel,
that drives the future,
and not a lump of mass,
an embarrassing burden.

How do I stop hating myself,
for things I’ve never done,
when I face a challenge,
my mind keeps shouting,
run run, turn around,
run run.

How do I stop punishing myself,
for every little mistake,
every promise I break,
the guilt compounds,
when I realize my good fortune,
and feel that I owe everyone.

They say move on,
look, the future is waiting,
but I keep debating,
and the step never moves.
I’m haunted by the thought,
that no matter how far I reach,
one day I’ll lose everything
one by one.

I continue to hating myself,
for things I’ve never done,
when I face a challenge,
my mind keeps shouting,
run run, go and hide,
run run.
