Your Enemies Within - Poem by Han Min Ohn

Who do you think are your worst enemies in the world
They are just hiding inside you, waiting for your call
Whenever you lax your guard a little bit
They will creep out and take you down any minute

They will make you afraid of a thing
Which you don't need to be scared of a bit
They will pull your progressing legs from behind
Under the excuse that to yourself you should be kind

They will whisper words of suspicion into your ears
Making you believe that your future is blurred
They will force you to surrender your goal
Devouring your confidence which inside of you is stored

So your worst enemies arise from your own inner mind
Not from myriads of things you encounter outside
You can conquer all adversaries you meet in life
If you have defeated these enemies lingering inside.
