I can’t do it
So don’t try to convince me that
I have the capacity to be sober
Because at the end of the day
I don’t like myself enough
And I’m not going to lie to myself by saying
There is a strength in me that really matters
So be assured I’ll remind myself
That I’m a weak and worthless person
And nothing you say will make me feel
I deserve recovery and sobriety
Because no matter what
I am not good enough to recover
And I’m in no frame of mind to believe that
Joy, strength and serenity do exist within me
Because whenever I look at my reflection I always think
Am I as weak or unable to change as I believe people think?
Now read from the bottom up, how we talk to ourselves and feel about ourselves on a daily basis matters x
