Heavily edit your comments about
harming yourself as if you are freezing
to death cut off all considerations of
ending the temporary pain while requesting
help reveal the truth about quietly battling
mental illness in the trunk of your car.

In The Face of Failure

Get up in the face of failure
using good ole’ consistency; try
and deflate “the sky is the limit” balloons
of limitations placed on dreams
challenge the conventional wisdom
about your potential sharpening your skills
with only one positive move per day
for three weeks to form a good habit.
