Me Vs. Me - Poem by Makayla Straight

It is official
I have lost the war
The war that is in my head
So much violence
It i s amazing how much I endorsed
I know I gave my best
I fought until my very last breath
I have tried
To only fail
I bow my head in shame
You are a loser
Chants in my head
I guess I should have listened to them all
They all told me
That there was no way I would win
Instead of listening
I put my pride on the line
When I walked upon the battlefield
My pride was stepped on
Shattered into little pieces
I am a fool if ever one
I have no one to blame
But myself
I was so perplex
I guess I should not be astonished
When I was conquered
Conquered in a very emotional war
Between me and me!

    The inner critic is, as shown in your poem, very powerful; yet it always allows us to make ourselves instead of quietly backing down. Pride is a good explanation. Excellent poem, very engaging to read.
