tim's Bits and Pieces - 41. At First; After Consideration; The Truth

Just working through some things.

At First

 

When you’re as broken as I seem to be

What do you do?

How to fix me?

Should I take a survey of all that I know?

Read about ego?

Learn about control?

Should I sit and pray to an unknown god?

Talk to the shrink?

Keep a record?

Usually to myself I am unkind, not so some say

I am really that bad?

Cruel and callous are the words which repeat

Nasty and cold; but I wasn’t aware

I am not worthy

Should I just disappear?

 

 

After Consideration

 

I think about what you have said to me

Maybe I shouldn’t be this way or that

As you ride your white horse of righteousness

Telling us how to feel, and what to think

Badgering us with your own agenda

While telling me I am causing you pain

Perhaps you should keep your words to yourself

And repair the cracked mirror of your life

Before taking a cruel hammer to mine.

 

The Truth

 

Once it was words, were important

How things felt, look and what’s real

Today it’s being loud, rude and brash

That seems to attract; make people feel

 

But it’s true, it’s the ugly we recall

That is what the verbose and loathsome are

Their bragging and constant need for attention

Written over and over again on a star

 

It’s a star though, with no substance

And sooner than later its shine will wear

Leaving behind its exposed truth

Its fallaciousness will discordantly glare

 

And the meek will then inherit

Their pure truth will win out and shine

Bullies and braggarts will sink in their mire

Then destiny and stars once more will align

****

Thanks for reading.

After Consideration made my gut clench. How often have I given useless, gratuitous words, blather that burdens and breaks my brothers? How often have I unthinkingly shattered another man’s mirror? You make me feel the hurt I’ve inflicted.

The Truth lifted me up again. You make a good case for the enduring real, the lasting truth. 

Thanks for all of these. They are awesome. 

I don't know Parker. I shouldn't have thought any, or many. Thank you for your comments. I appreciate it.

Each of these poems is fueled by anger, disappointment, rejection, self-doubt... emotions we can all relate to on some level. you've voiced yours in clear, concise verbiage, tim. As others here have already said, After Consideration packs its own special punch, right in the kisser. I felt the bludgeoning as I read it. I hope expressing your thoughts this way helped release some of the bullshit. you are loved, boy.

Thank you, Sir.  poem one and two are related .. the third is due to conversation i read that was rather cruel and egotistical.

So all of your adjectives are what i felt on those occasions.

Kissing is too much fun...i'd never punch anyone there, Sir ... hehe :D   Thank You again for reading and for your excellent comments.

A well thought out piece. Can't help but feel called out somehow... All I can say is that you are truly and definitely worthy.
