Personal Accountability

I’ve savaged myself that the tears stopped coming
and all that I worked for became a blur,
a host of lost memories never to be rediscovered.
I demolished those around me,
took no pity on their love or their affection
just danced with my devil selfishly until it all ran bare.
I gave away lifetimes of joy and moments of glee,
the kind that you’re blessed to find once
much less time and time again.
In the end,
it was never worth it,
and though I can never take it back,
I can walk taller now with each day
despite my stumbles,
each day I will find the win,
become something more.
