Who is Sabotaging Me?

Why do you feel this need?
All the hard work I have done
You wave it away
Hide it in the dark
Try to make me forget
The struggles until triumph
You tell me they are so small
Insignificant and inconsequential
Time wasted and for nought
Why do you feel this need?
To undermine my efforts
Convince me with continual dialogue
How worthless I am
I’ll never measure up
Be enough for anyone
Remind me of failures
Paint them larger than life
Magnify them to extreme
Why do you feel this need?
I ask the face in the mirror
Sadly looking back at me
