NaPoWriMo 2015, Day 15: Poetry (a poem)

Today’s NaPoWriMo.net prompt is to write a poem that addresses itself or some aspect of its self [sic].

It pesters me
to dig deep
for things I’d rather leave buried

It taunts me
when I resist
the things I can’t escape

It pushes me
to make it work
when things feel impossible or rough

It offers me
second chances
to make things right for once

It gives me
a new voice
that surprises me with its strength
