Saboteur – Sniper


The goal is clear
the time just right
the game is in the balance
and I’m feeling strong and bright.
The end is very close now
the aim of all my work
is just about attainable
but I’m just about to shirk
the last little bit of effort
the last little bit of sweat
the last little bit of energy
that will get me to where I want to be.
Because a saboteur sitting on my shoulder
is whispering negative self-belief,
encouraging thoughts of inglorious failure
and inhibiting me from being complete.

The Poetry of Archetypes are written by Sulaiman Mackay

Sulaiman Mackay is a lifelong lover of writing poetry and has been particularly enamored with it since arriving at middle-age. He has realized it is a powerfully evocative and revealing means of self discovery and conscious development. He started writing poems about archetypes as a way of expressing his inner work, discovering the light and shadow aspects of his psyche, and to explore the energetics of the archetypal experience. He has recently completed an Honours Degree in Creative Communications at the University of Canberra and is currently looking for a way to turn his love for the written word into paid work.
