Destructive mindset 

 

Remember when you said to me

It’s all in my head, the things I see

 

Who are you?

You don’t know unless you are ‘hurting’ too?

 

You love to hate me

I love to trust you

 

But some are hurting more than you

Some have been through worse, than you

 

Your condescending tone doesn’t help that much

It’s, ‘wrong’, it leads to destructive mindset

 

But you feed your inflated ego rather than feel

You carry the weight of the words you can’t speak

 

Fearless are those who speak their minds

Not a single one is delicate or fragile

 

You have ‘a perfect’ smile

But your soul is weak

 

It’s not a solution

It’s not enough

 

Hatred, Fear, Intimidation, Lies

Screw up our lives

 

Ego sucks; you must learn how to use it

It f***s you up, bet you won't admit

 

 

But is it really worth it?

This piece brings back memories of a time when I was black or white, since then and hours of work on myself I have found the ego self destructive ! Your poem permeates words of wisdom in a simple realistic setting that makes your point understandable to everyone! Fantastic job!

Every. Word. Hit. Home... Heavy as an elephant... This almost read like a nightmare come alive... Boom/slam... Powerfully penned... Screw what they think they know...! Let ego go, or use it row for home...

It's a delicate world out there hanging on the loose thread of love. Some do take others for granted as they think love isn't legal anymore - but love is the only legal virtue. If adopted from heart, no other weakness remains. Thanks for sharing :)

Well, that took a few readings to fully digest properly. I am a huge fan of the belated sense of conviction that struck me each time I read it. I was lead on an egotistical journey, so to speak. First, I empathized with the writer, feeling the pain and knowing what that feels like. Then I felt the sense of injustice toward all the world's narcissistic members. However, at the end, I am called to the line and it was not quite comfortable - to admit how much my own ego plays in my judgement of others.

Whew. A wonderful piece. Very thoughtful and thought provoking.

As always, well written and much loved.

I am not against ego, but not everything has to black and white... read more
Strong words, Zaisha.

Quite often those that walk around with a chip on their shoulder are found to be meek individuals when the pressure is applied. Lying, intimidation and wanton self promotion are their hallmarks. But underneath it all is usually a coward.

I enjoyed the piece. Truthfully written. Just a shame someone like your poem pic, Kanye West, couldnt read such words.
