Turn your Back on the World


Name caller

Doubt caster

The things you claim to see

Are you pointing to something about yourself?

Or are you pointing the finger at me?

Don’t let your anger control you

Nor let the bitterness sink in

A life is not defined in a momentary glance

It’s what’s on the inside

It’s how we use what’s within

Turn up the heat

Put my feet to the fire

Are you the authority

To place your moral grounding higher?

Turn around 

And look at today

What was it for you

That made your fear and anger stay?

Was it in your past?

Spark a memory of defeat?

Turn your back on the world?

Hide behind the face of deceit?

How is it we fall?

The heart captured, sour and depleat

Are you getting any better?

Does it make your life complete?

The older I get

The less I know, the more I see

One idea comes to mind

I once thought other people thought like me

It’s attachment of negativity

The emotional articulation of pain

Results in the dimming of perception

The reflection of light in a mind that wanes
