My Mind

Standard

My mind is playing the

“You can’t” game.

The 

“You aren’t” ,

“You are too this or too that” game.

It is exhausting these climbs and the cliffs.

I fall.

Continually crawling back up.

Gravel on my knees,

Vines and thorns around my throat.

Reminding myself

Not to struggle so much

Against them

For

They just dig deeper into my flesh.

I close my eyes.

Exhale.

Count to three and open my eyes again.
