Why do we do this to ourselves

Why do we do this to ourselves

Hitting ourselves over the head
again and again
because
of the voice that says
come on
why can’t you…
don’t be such a…

hey, cruel voice, can you shut up please
you have no idea
what cards I’ve been dealt
I can’t be like that other person there because
I’m not him
or her
don’t judge me for how I’m doing
compared to someone else entirely
look at what I’m achieving
with the cards I have

look and see
how far I’ve come.
