Self-Attack (2017)

Can’t even look in the mirror without

My reflection hiding from me

Can’t put pen to paper

With my words erasing on me

Can’t speak out loud

Without my mind going crazy on me

How can I ever be great

When the chance to be good was taken from me?

How can you ever see you

When you’re fighting your

Worst enemy… you?
