A Note to Self


I lost a battle,
but I am now winning the war,
I swam against the tide of selfishness and incompetence,
not getting far, or at least not far enough.

Not knowing what to do,
muddled inside, when faced with their evil doctrine,
I just struggled through, I could not hide.

Moving on, I took flight, getting comfortable again; it wasn’t easy, but armed with self-belief, this time I’ll win.
