Distortions

I miss my confidence
So sad it had to leave
It’s been replaced with incompetence
And an unwillingness to believe

I’m saddled with uncertainty
And surrounded by junk
In an advanced state of atrophy
And caught in an awful funk

So stiff and so sore
I’m all squeezed out
I’ve become a maddening bore
With decaying clout

Feeling so castrated and mute
Emasculated and weak
I’m hunting for the root
Of my interrupted streak

Imprisoned by directionless desire
And a lack of persistence
Who will re-ignite the fire
And end this resistance?
