Revelations

“When you look into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you.” -Friedrich Nietzsche

Revelations

It’s only blind people who let
Harsh words cause them dismay
They believe they are perceptive
But their eyes just betray

They’re told a criticism and
Their day is now “So bad!”
They’re told how they do come up short
And proceed to get mad

They lose control of inner calm
Because they don’t look close
They want to get away but these
Harsh words to me engross

Every bit of hate I’ve gotten
Negative feedback
Revealed a piece of the speaker
Their truth shed through attack

Haters who do hate themselves
And desperately lash out
People who do not have faith
And so they always doubt

Miserable, pathetic wretches
Filled with weakness, fear
Who futilely defend themselves
With words like “fag” and “queer”

Egomaniacs who think
About themselves all day
And then point fingers in attempt
To seem another way

“Ugly” by the cold hearted
And “rude” by the aloof
“Gross” by out of shape smokers
“Weird” by a boring goof

None of these assessments have
A negative effect
There is no drama since I choose
To observe and collect

Information on the speaker
To reveal *their* truth
Instead of being a victim
I choose to be a sleuth

And use these supposed “barbs” as ways
To pull the hiding veil
Off the haters and cowards
Whose attacks always fail

    “Every bit of hate I’ve gotten Negative feedback Revealed a piece of the speaker

    This verse caught my attention… So true.. I logged onto a website today that ripped a post apart by various commenter’s..Not on WP… It showed plainly their ignorance and lack of respect.. I just smiled and clicked the page close…. So much vehement outrage out there that some people need to express themselves in this fashion.. Very revealing!…

Speak up, fellow Warrior!
