A poem

How many more sorries can you say, before you just do the thing
The thing you ought to, the right thing, that you fail to — over and over

You value the impression you leave others more than the tumult within
You seek to shape the narrative- the persona, through an outside lens
How much longer can you live a contradiction
How can you criticize, when you too are flawed
