Looking Bad

17 Jun

“Rancor is an outpouring of a feeling of inferiority.”
~Jose Ortega y Gasset

Looking Bad

For those who choose to walk the path
That Warriors walk down
Be warned that those on the sidelines
Will meet you with a frown

For those who choose to stand apart
And of themselves ask more
Most others will not be inspired
And they will not adore

The Warrior is not cheered on
By the majority
Trying harder for the lazy
Ain’t their cup of tea

They’re made to feel inferior
Because they care too much
About what others are doing
Because they’re out of touch

With their own strength, potential and
Abilities ’cause they
Choose the easy shortcut to
Have the most care-free day

And those who walk into the fire
Out of their comfort zone
Make the rest “look bad” and so
They do cajole and groan

They discourage those who try harder
So they won’t seem slow
They feel stunted around all those
Who strive to learn and grow

“You’re making us look bad!” they think
But never pay them mind
A Warrior does see the truth
But for the rest; they’re blind

And deaf and nothing you can do
Will get the message home
Don’t waste your time explaining, just
Keep on that path and roam

They’ll do their best to slow you since
Your progress makes them see
Their lack of movement towards being
All that they can be

The Warrior cares little if
They make others feel less
“Lead, follow or get out of
My way,” they do profess

“Do not slow my journey or
I’ll run right over you
And that will truly make you have
A negative self-view”

    Yes so right.. some are both blind and deaf except to their own chanting.. And no amount of coaching from a Warrior will help them for they are set upon their own path.. I know I have tried often.. And now know its their choice…
    Love and Blessings

Speak up, fellow Warrior!
