Self-Miserable

Tue, 03/19/2019 - 02:39 -- ohsimmy

Can it be changed? mended? altered?
no.
Do i worry? bite? tap?
yes.
Feel miserable? uninterested? Still?
yes.

But why do I do this?
But why do I waste my energy being sad, mad, uncomfortable, upset?

Do i tell myself to be happy? excited? inspired?
no.
Am i just okay? whatever? fine?
yes.
Can this be changed? fixed? Offset?
yes.

It is time for me to do this.
Reassure myself that I am happy, content, strong, resilient.
Focus on myself and my capability to reach, not my inability to get there.

The grade?

The weight?

The smile?

The teeth?

The height?

The impatience?

You make me miserable?
yes.
Or rather, I let myself make me miserable.
yes.

BUT NOT ANYMORE.
