Fearless, strong, resilient…

Fearless, strong, resilient,

the words that resonate from beings around me

wanting me to be the very same

but how can I tell them,

that I have broken down

beyond repair

I have chosen to be miserable

I am well beyond in that dark hole

where even some help, some pull from above

can’t bring me out

I am going to survive there, half dead

and even stop surviving one day just like that.

My Achilles’ heel

My mind is my Achilles’ heel

in front of which I kneel

It is my weakness even when

I am strong

It is the fatal flaw which when

struck with an arrow

causes indeterminate pain

and may even lead to the end

of the entire thought process

It is something I will

always have to deal with, my mind-

My Achilles’ heel.
