A Piece of Work

I’m taking back control
of the forces that guide me
I’ve grown coarse
through the years behind me
It’s been quite a job
to sustain relative peace of mind
Who have I been kidding?
Who’ll do my bidding
as I rebuild my psyche
from the ground up
saying fare-thee-well
to misguided agendas
of the black hole in my heart
that’s been eating away
pieces of me
