Supporting Myself

In the library of my memories
I wander the stacks in recollection
Longing for the good old days
The periodicals of my existence
That give me cause to smile
I grant myself no clemency
For a wrong path I might have taken
I am my strongest critic
My hardest battle fought
Always expecting more
And waiting to be disappointed
But a reminder from a dear old friend
Of the distance I have come
The obstacles bounded over
And the growth I demonstrate
Soften me and bring realization
I need to be my strongest supporter
And my biggest ally
For I cannot expect others to be there
If I am totally absent for myself
