My Worst Enemy

You can overcome it.

My Worst Enemy

Another stab in the back

I feel the blood run down my chest

But now there's no turning back

Here goes one more defeat to digest

It's so dark

That I can't see

Who this enemy is

Who is steadily attacking me

Another shot in the leg

Another punch in the neck

I feel the blood burst out my veins

But I've gotten used to the pain

I turn around to see

Who is constantly abusing me

Who is repeatedly defeating me

But as far as I can see

No one dares to go near me

It looks like I'm the strongest in the game

Everyone praises my name

Because apparently all I do is win

But that's because they don't see the tremendous losses within

They don't see the hurt that's inside

They don't see the pain that I hide

Another punch in the face

Will I ever finish this race?

And I still don't know who I'm fighting against

I look around to see

Who is steadily attacking me

Who is constantly abusing me

Who is repeatedly defeating me

But as far as I can see

I'm all alone in this misery

Tears are running down my cheek

When will my opponent stop playing hide-and-seek?

I can't take it anymore

The burn is worse than before

When will someone turn on the lights?

Can't they see I'm sick of fights?

But no one answers my cry

Does no one care if I die?

I guess I'll have to find the light myself

If I want to get damn out of this hell

Helplessly

I stagger through the dark

Hoping for a spark of hope

But finally I find the switch

And with my last breath

I flip it in the hope to overcome this horrid ditch

Again I look around to see

Who is steadily attacking me

Who is constantly abusing me

Who is repeatedly defeating me

But as far as I can see

I'm still all alone in this misery

So then I look at myself

And see the gun on the floor

I feel the blood on my fist

I notice the knife in my hand

Now I finally understand

And I slowly lift my head

To stare at the shattered glass infront of me

In that moment I see

The one who's steadily attacking me

The one who's constantly abusing me

The one who's repeatedly defeating me

My worst enemy is ME.
