Not My Best Self

I settled for less than I deserved.
Going opposite of my instincts became the norm,
all in the name of a peaceful life.

Quick to budge;
always caving in to other people’s demands.
Being naïve was just getting played out.
I couldn’t keep enjoying my excuses.

Rough around the edges,
bracing for my transformation,
but hard-work stopped the race before I got started.
I wasn’t ready to overcome my fears, or so I told myself.
