Justify

The private monsters,

of motivation and justification,

Swill around the depths unchecked.

Matured by years of bad decisions,

And nebulous consequences.

~

Don’t make the mistake,

Of thinking mine are just like yours.

The horizon is closing,

So I’m disciplining my monsters,

Because I’d rather be able to live with myself.
