The War With Ourselves

the war in iraq is bad....but the wars with ourselves are the worse

because when you are fighting yourselve...who will don't know

we have wars with ourselves all the time..but the wars with other countrys..

they don't come around that much...i wish the wars with myself were the same....

but you know theres nothing i can do about that...because my inner self is weak...

i fall but i get back up because i tell myself i can not give up ...i have to fight

and not give in to myself...because if you do give in to can you be sure

that u can win against anyone else? thats the can't...

    A topic that we all face in our lives. It comes and goes in times of depression and insecurities. Paul in the" Bible" talks about it. I like the way that you approached the subject. Keep writing. Sara
