Fall to the floor on my knees metaphorically
I might disrespect someone
But
I ask this rhetorically:
What can you do
when you realize you need help
because you’re too weak to do anything yourself?
Can’t think straight
Stuck in a loop;
A self-destructive figure eight

I can't be the only one that feels this way.
Cracking under the pressure
Choosing between pain and pleasure
After all this time, this is all I have to say:
I realize I have to become
the person I want someone to be to me
Because truthfully, I'm making myself sick
I need to be
An inspiration, a motivation.
For lacking drive leads to devastation

Why hate on yourself
when everyone else can do it for you?
I am on a road to recovery and redemption
I go bravely.
For this is the path I have chosen to walk.

those lines caught my attention-apply this to yourself-this is a motivation to be greater

:) Thank you for your feedback and constructive criticism.

Seeing this made my day a lot better.  Things have been rough lately.

However, I'm always trying to become a better person.

-Thanks
