Listen, It is You

Lift your chin to listen — do not blame your circumstance
nor that which has burdened you; such tribulation does not keep
you from attaining the truth you dearly seek.
Do not cast a glance of judgement toward
those who have found their way.
The truth, though truly terrible to bear, is this, no one person,
but yourself, is to blame. It is you who limits that which this life can provide.
It is you who falls so quickly to your hand and knee to the temptations of the world.
It is you.
With your mind you conceive thoughts and with your tongue,
you speak them into existence.
Tell me this, do you lay in defeat willingly?
Protect your heart, stand, resist, prevail, continue.
It is not the world that has poisoned you, it is that which you entertain.
Do you not harbor doubt, fear, loneliness, and idea of failure?
Truly, if you take such filth to heart, then are you not the cause of such result?
Temptation does not reside solely in the sheets of your bed.
Cast away your limiting thoughts and tomorrow shall reward you.
You are worthy.
