Hope is an Inner Dialog

I AND MYSELF

I war with myself
Wanting to change
Not just change
Improve

Lose the weight
Find the job
Keep the faith

I mock myself
Certain I’ll fail
Not just fail
Bomb

Retrace the steps
Replay the scene
Repeat the past

I surprise myself
Choosing to fight
Not just fight
Prevail

Lift the weight
Hold the pose
Move the goal

I remind myself
It’s better to smile
Not just smile
Laugh

Enjoy the light
Embrace the life
Absorb the love

I convince myself
To give us one more day
