The enemy is the inner me.
Baby girl, aren’t you tired of fighting yourself?
It's not happening out there, it's all happening live in your head.
God, do you see me from a vantage point? 
Past my anxious thoughts, my foolish anxious thoughts.
I know You do. 
You see me.
I want to be on the other side of this crushing.
I wish to be fine wine.
I was crushed to sweet, crisp goodness.
Taste me, world.
The enemy is the inner me.
She whispers awful things to me. God, she’s so mean. Make her stop because she won’t listen to me?
Speak life into my bones, and I will walk.
Spit on my eyes, and I will see.
Sing to me the life that you’ve planned, and I will dance it.
