    Its hard to make magic when your surrounded by tragedy
    But to give and complain thats a man-made tendency
    Habits are hard to break and easy to make
    And its easy to blame the world
    When you're scared to create
    And you're scared to be great
    Scared to love and loss so you disquise it with hate
    You're reclined and relaxed
    Afraid to acknowledge the facts
    So back, back further and evil determine your purpose
    You're worthless unless you act
    Claim the odds are stacked against you
    But its faith that you lack
    You're still intact
    With the ability to move,
    The abillity to win,
    and the dignity to lose,
    You are your enemy unless otherwise you choose!

    We are often our own worse enemy, seeing more fear in achievement than in loss. This was masterful, poetess.

    poet this is a great piece

    understanding not everyone can win the tour de france

    especially with a diet of McDonald's

    lol

    but understanding you gave your all and put it on the line

    and you gave your best

    you should have the dignity to show you are still standing

    and that way you could never lose or be a loser

    great piece like i said

    peace
