Reality Checks

Time to check in with reality

The often unpaid or accepted bill

Who wishes to face this head on?

Awareness of missteps that enlarge

In hindsight with guilt and remorse

While our triumphs began to deflate in the distance

Struggle to find a balance between self recrimination

And the determination to evolve into something better

Caterpillars still trapped in the cocoon of our false narratives

That prevent us from breaking free from self imposed bonds

To emerge as the butterfly we long to break free

All checks cashed and paid in full

A triumph of our mind and heart over ourselves
