“Self-Flagellation”

whip cracking, the blows

rain down as i flagellate

myself mentally, a little

payback for all the wrong

moves i’ve made in this

life i’ve been given, always

beating myself up for the

many failures i perceive

as defining my life, a

cycle of self-defeating

and ultimately fruitless

thinking but one i am

given to nonetheless,

unable to cut myself a

break and just let

bygones be bygones
