My enemy is myself

My enemy is myself

A Poem by Daniealla Hosein

Sometimes the fire is within us and we need to learn to put it out ourselves before it kills us.

Cracked walls of white 
Stamped with my miseries and my inner self laughing with delight 
Walking through shallow hallways 
Viewing my work 
I see myself again. She's looking at me

Each memory carved with a story 
Each story attached with a picture 
The blank hallways are what to be 
Brightness is what I want it to be 
That's what I need it to be

For I can not see clearly 
I am blinded by life's horrors 
My inner self saves me 
Or do I think so?

My fears is what you strike
My strengths is what you tease
I trusted what I couldn't see
My downfall? Myself. 
I'm my biggest enemy
