Before we even start, we fear how it might end
We tend to cast more problems that paralyze our actions
We trigger all the self destructive traps
All which we have set for ourselves
We look back and ask is it too late to turn around
All because it’s getting uncomfortable
The doubt starts to flood us
Why are we even doing this?
We see failure on the horizon
And quickly we surrender without seeing it through
We scare ourselves into submission
Long before we’ve even tried
Panicked and alone
We have let our doubt win again
We have fed the wrong wolf
The sun sets and the darkness rises with a depression
It consumes us and feeds on our fears
Until all that we are is a dark depression of doubt
A former shadow of our hopes
We’ve left the battlefield
Without having fired a single shot
Never knowing what could’ve been had we stayed and fought.
