My Worst Enemy

She is a killjoy
Sure to whisper doubts in my ear
When happiness makes an appearance

She is a villian
Waiting to throw a spanner in the works
Whenever I feel confident and ready for a challenge

She is a saboteur
Who fuels my weaknesses
And makes me derail my own efforts at improvem

She is a naysayer
Who yells a resounding “no”
Before I even reach to the semblance of a “yes”

She is negativity personified
Pushing all my positivity to the edge
While all I can do is watch

She makes everything difficult
Even the things that should be simple
Turning everything into a massive effort

She blinds me with nonsense
Making the world a murky place
And I can’t see good from bad

The day is not far though
When I will stand up to her
And reclaim the life I am supposed to lead

For you see when I look in the mirror
I have no doubt
My worst enemy…. is me

    You’re being too hard on yourself. You need to take a breather boss. Well written as usual

    1. Hey thanks for the feedback! It’s just some thoughts flowing. Another poem follows describing the other side as well. While we can be our worst enemy sometimes, many a time we are our own best friend and champion too. 😊
