Dig up the awful
and dwell upon its bane.
You then begin to wonder
why you feel the same old pain.
A new way of thinking…
No, that won’t work for you.
It involves a change of direction,
and we know what pity does for you.
It keeps you grounded in your purpose.
Right where you want to be.
Your turn your head before observing
what others plainly see.
A cowardly company you choose;
the only one you know.
A befriended demon to walk with you
blocking available space to grow.
The dark one loves you dearly —
holding you, night and day.
But, let’s be real, dear friend,
You know you like it that way.
