Self Infliction by Daginne Aignend

Self infliction

It's a pestering virus
disturbing my brain waves.
A continuous silent command
compelling myself to
elevate into higher levels,
even when it wears me out,
makes me sleepless
and restlessly insecure

The worst epiphenomenon of 
this ambitious virus is
Doubt of one's own ability.
When successes fail
the inner self 
into a severe downfall,
resulting in unmitigated apathy
I think I will sleep for days now.
