Success at Defeat

I really do want to be successful
Thoughts of failure paralyze me
Excuses continuously immobilize me
I become the loser that never started
The finish line seems impossible to reach
I tell others to keep trying but I don’t practice what I preach
I think what if I get started and I’m a little too slow?
What if I’m not as good as I think I am?
I’ve yet to try hard enough to know
I struggle with what I imagine others think of me
Really I should modify my thoughts of myself
I try to tear back the façade I put up
But I end up running back into hiding
Feeling there is no use in confiding in anyone
I am a self made island
I’m afraid of setting sail to a new world
Even though I really wish I could be successful
