Self Limiting

When words have failed
Precious time squandered
All with seemingly valid excuse
My goals thwarted to naught
By the actions of myself
Destruction not needing
Any external force
Much more powerful from within
This is when a pause is necessary
Deep breathing required
Examination of the status
No longer reasoning out
But rather opting in
To be part of my choices
Making them happen
Or at least working for
Instead of against myself
Not expecting miracles
And creating obstacles
For proof of magic
Now I rest and get out of my own way
