What I Know

If I know the things I know
Then why can I not do
The things that I know?
Knowledge not lacking
But implementation amiss
Egregious error of action
To continue down this path
A comeuppance due
For failure to do
What I know to be right
For I know what I know
And I know this is wrong
Is it power of will
Or pain and suffering
I seem to believe
To only deserve?
Why do I do what I do
To myself?
Analysis of the mind
Reveals no understanding
Why sabotaging myself
Is a repeated choice
Only when I do what I know
To be the right thing to do
Will I do what’s right by me
And for me
Repeated over again
And again
To change my trajectory
Acknowledge a wrong turn
But redirect
Not continuously chastise
For that is all
That I will remember to do
I can
And I will
Do what I know
To be right for me
