Fixation

Why do I let myself do this?

To Fixate on what I already know is wrong?

How do I tell myself to trust this?

To love the person I have become?

 

Why do I let myself tear you down?

To uncover the mistakes and bury the good?

How do I tell myself it’s time to change?

To dig into this dirt on which I’ve stood?

 

Why do I let myself feel this depression?

To hold onto every past hurt I can’t undo?

How do I tell myself it’s time to forgive?

To wipe away the mud and really touch you?

 

Why do I let myself sink into all these doubts?

To believe what logic tells me isn’t so?

How do I tell myself this can’t stay buried?

To make a foundation from every past blow?

 

Why do I let myself fixate

On what still hurts when there’s so much growth?

How do I let myself see

Everything we can be– and should be?
