I taste it in the air
Bitter irony medium rare
Everything racing by
Is it me ?
Am I standing still
Or a cloud in the sky
Or worse…in reverse?
Goddess release from this curse
Self imprisonment
I build the bars
Yet beg for the key
This just isn’t me
Caution to the wind
I don’t bend
Insurmountable hill?
I fill the bill
Getting in my own way
This game I won’t play
I taste it in the air
Bitter irony medium rare
Skid row is a day pass
Next to one’s own self-wrath
Pain is physical
Thought is mental
Will is spiritual
Go it alone
Is there any other way?
Not today
I’m out of this hand
I’ve something better planned.

"...Getting in my own way..."

Sure is a killer to a productive life, yet I see it so often in my practice. This is a very thoughtful work. Bravo.
