I-SCIPLINE

Smash the mirrors - 
so you can see something beyond yourself?
what!
I shout, internally - smiling, thinking...
about the narrowness of my mind.

How can I never forget the narrowness of my mind?
How can I never forget the sharpness of my instinct?
it is like i have forsaken both 
and i should be a lower case.

and the only thing that gets through
the only thing that filters down
are just remnants of once greatness
remnants of potential
turned.

smash the mirrors is how - smash the mirrors is how
my writing is how - 
what a breakthrough - eureka - EUREKA
I EXCLAIM IN CAPITALS
EUREKA
smash the mirrors...
so that you cannot look at yourself
so you cannot grow
that you cannot blossom

don't look at yourself

look at the mirror - what does the mirror tell you?

it tells me i am afraid
but i am not afraid and to prove it
i lift great weights and travel great distances and have wealthy discussions...

i am afraid

it tells me i am so weak - weak about being teased
weak about being left
weak about admitting the truth

and that's what this whole thing comes down do - 

mirrors show you the truth
it is i that stops it from coming
all i 

iscipline
I-SCIPLINE -
