I will overcome
the petty fears
that creep up my limbs
like slimy worms
and eat away my courage
rotting the core of my being
until my safe world
swallows me entirely

today I say
no more

I will overcome
the desires of my flesh
which imprison me in a
glittery cage of steel
using their alluring voices
to convince me that I want
their squeezing fingers
around my throat
forever hungering for more
of my soul to devour

today I say
no more

I will overcome
the laziness
that envelops me like
a suffocating cloud
draining every drop of willpower
from my gasping form
and leaving me prey
to any evil that wishes to plague me

but today I say
no more
