Are cheating yourself.
They can’t defeat you when you’re already
Defeated by your own hand.

You built a wall so high,
You dug a hole so deep,
The walls inside your mind
Became reality.

The tired fantasy of what you’ll become
Slips beyond your reach.
The sting of failure could be crippling, so
Never look beneath.

And so you throw your stones
At those who shame you
All from the safety of,
All from the comfort
Of anonymity.

Still enamored with ideas
Still awaiting deliverance
Stuck in the language of what could be
Ever defeated by cowardice

And so you throw your stones
At those who shame you, because they took a chance
While you convince yourself
It was beneath you to ever play the game.
