Weakness to Strength

I had a weak moment the other day,
a moment of giving up,
a moment of feeling like I wasn't part of this world,
a moment of hating myself,
and hating who I am as a person.
I know, and understand, that it's my fault
for putting myself in this predicament.
I know that I'm the only one that can let go of my past,
and move forward with my life.
I know that if I want something so bad in life,
that I have to be the one to get up, go out,
and get it myself.

I've came to a realization that I can't
be down on myself anymore.
I can't continue to sit around at home in
a dark room feeling sorry for who I am as a person.
If you want something so bad in life,
sitting around feeling sorry for yourself is
not the answer, nor will it solve your problems.
