POEM: FOR YOU

It’s hard to know what to do

When you know what to do

But you can’t seem to

Do it.

 

Sometimes we suffocate ourselves

With our own

Selves.

 

And the strength to move forward and make decisions

Are lost.

 

In my tendencies?

In my weakness?

In my love for where I am now?

 

But when you don’t love it

And don’t know any better

Cause you find change

Hard.

 

You are left with

Yourself.

 

Tell yourself

You can do it

Whatever it is

Find a new job

Find a mate

Fix your car

Lose the pile of papers on your desk.
