Everyday is another set of tasks for me to complete,
As I lose my motivation to wake up in the morning.
As I slay the deranged demons hanging over my shoulder,
More barriers, challenges, and criticisms appear.
Time is passing me by at an ever increasing speed,
it's beyond my control to slow down or stop time.
Despite having so many goals and ambitions,
I can feel individuals and situations crushing me.
I am putting up a fight and am shouting, screaming,
But I cannot stop the resistance and judgement.
Some things are beyond my control and reach,
However, I can manage my actions and reactions.
I am not a victim or a helpless child in this fight,
As I slave away to have a life worth living for.
I am worth living for and have much good in my life,
And despite its difficulties life always has something great.
