Resistance

Woefully
We keep self-defeating motives
We hold with shinobi grip
Cloaked emotions in motion

We focus so hard on goals
Without noticing control
Is in opposing conditioning
Conflicting of our inner needs

Contradictions we inflict on ourselves 
Inner victimhood
From legitimate misgivings
We live with that we shouldn't

We develop misperceptions
Some resentments of ourselves
That we have no presence of
They just sit there and dwell

Until we meet them with resistance
Such resistance we've lived with
Our whole existence
We don't even recognize it's persistence

We must listen
To that inner child
That cry's and smiles wildly
Silently shying anxiety

It's just trying to help
It not knows why or how
Quietly thank them for their guidance
We'll work together now.
