The new coal

Fuelling our emotions with thought


It powers us and gives us energy
We think it’s in abundance
Cheaper and easier to mine
That we can just keep digging and we’ll never stop

It fuels our perfectionism
We believe it’s our reason for success
The constant overthinking
The drive that comes from “you’re never good enough”

But we are just digging holes in ourselves
Squandering our self worth as fuel
Mind tricks that create a false sense of protection
Our emotions heating up like a hot world

It is not sustainable
We cannot keep fuelling ourselves from pain
The new coal is not the new answer
We must give ourselves the chance to change
