I Am the Enemy of the Better Me

I am the enemy of the better me

When I find ways of defeat

I think

The only way to win is cheat

If you dig yourself into a hole

The further you get the farther you go

Where you stop

Only you control

Conflict will arise

When you meet reality

Your ego will resist

As you relinquish your objectivity

If you abandon your sense of purpose

Your moral compass is lost

Your journey has no direction

Can you imagine what is the cost?
