We do though. That's the beauty of us being such creatures called Humans. We seem to persevere in spite of ourselves. And yes, I do think we are our own worst enemy and in so many different ways.
I'd like to re-visit a poem of mine that I posted way back in January. This is the only work of mine that I've ever had published, but more importantly I think it reflects how we have to learn to look inside ourselves,and grow beyond what we've always known or what we've always been told. It is never an easy thing to face yourself.
We look upon the face in the looking glass,
wondering if the reflection is our own.
And the realm of possibilities
seem distant, lost, and outgrown.
In disbelief we realize
Time is not relevant for you and me.
There is more to this life
than we had once thought to be.
Change is much easier
than a constant steady mold.
We cannot change who we are,
only what things we're told.
