The final battle

When you finally stop blaming everyone else
And your ego is exposed
As the only real enemy worth fighting
There remains no place to hide

The illusion of a world out there
Causing you to feel one way or another
Has been shattered to pieces
And pretending to be a victim of circumstance
Is not an option anymore

There’s no fight to be fought out there
Instead I am left with my Self
As the only burden to bear
