Start saying YES
YES I AGREE
it's really that simple
just follow this ONE STEP
let me hear you say it
YES I AGREE
be careful bossy
don't tell them what you really think
yes thats right
you agree with me
end of course
Empire 7d
My heart feels heavy
My pulse burns
My head aches

I want freedom
I want peace
I want love
I feel these so deeply in my being
But I’m so confused
I’m so conflicted
And all those who would’ve helped me have gone
I’ve grown distant from once-trusted mentors
I don’t know where to find answers
Where to find help
Something inside me screams an answer
That I don’t want to hear

Or perhaps rather...
It is a still, small voice
Perhaps I’m rebelling against that which I love...
Words

Individual letters that collect together to form a distinct meaning of speech.

They flood from your mouth with no hesitation.

It seems as if you have no thoughts behind how they would impact me.


They collect around me like a pool of water.

I can feel the letters push and pull me in all directions.

Individual vowels threaten me with their tones and volumes.

As a whole, they stab me with their unfortunate denotation.


This puddle is muddled with my thoughts

I am left to wonder when we became so careless, and when we became so cruel to one another.

I sit here pondering, which part of our time together decided to crack and crumble at the seam.


I can feel my emotions threatening to spill over.

They are teetering on the edge of my makeshift ****

They scream at me making me feel powerless and weak.

I am sure that the disturbance is written on my face.


The moment seems to blur as I attempt to speak.
  
Terms flow out of me like a river with no ending and with no peace.

It aims to catch you in it's white water tides.

But the entirety of my speech, I fret about the holes that it will bore in you.


Yet in spite of all we have been through, it frustrates me that we do not hesitate to damage each other's walls with our harshness.

We do not feel in the wrong as we watch the each other's wounds seep.

We have lost the ability to pick each other off their feet.


The world feels empty due to the lack of empathy

An eeiry frightful peace.

How long will we walk around with our uncertainty?

if
i'm still waiting  for you to say something to me.
there's a rope between us

it isn’t fun
this feeling isn’t complete
i’m not finished with you, but maybe i’m just holding on
i wrote you letters. where are we going. nowhere.

What Is It With These... “ Know It Alls “... ?!?

They Seem To THINK That They’re CHOSEN...
When They... HAVEN'T Been CALLED... ?!?

They Really Make Me SICK...
With... ALL Their TALK... !!!

“You Shouldn’t Do This... !!!
You Need To Do That... !!!”

Always Running Some Chat...
As If They’re ALL THAT... !!!

You Have To Wonder WHY...
... Within Their Minds...
They Continually Try...
To Be The WISEST Guy...

Who Knows EVERY LAST THING...
About... EVERYTHING... !?!

They’re INCREDIBLE Folk...
And That Is... NO JOKE... !!!

They Know More About YOU...
Than YOU Seem To Do... ?!?

They Know Every Last Truth...
When They DON’T Even Have Proof... ?!?

They Know About Your Life... !!!

About... What You’ve Done WRONG... !!!
And... What You’ve Done RIGHT... ?!?

And They Even Have The Cheek...
To Think That They Can Speak...
About Issues Within YOUR Family...

As If They’ve... SEEN...
EVERYTHING That You’ve Seen... ?!?
...... Your Family DO.......
When That’s Just NOT TRUE... !?!

The Know It All... PROVES...
How A FOOL REALLY MOVES... !!!

So of Course They’re EXPERTS...
On... YOUR LIFE’s WORTH...
And How You Should Turn...

When It Comes To...
... Your Work...

When It Comes To...
... Your Health...

When It Comes To...
... Your Wealth...

And Of COURSE... How YOU...
Should Conduct Yourself... ?!?

... FRUSTRATED Souls...
Who Just CAN'T Control...
Running Off Their Mouths...
Uptown And Downtown... !!!

The Type of... CLOWNS...
With NO Circus Grounds... ?!?

Because What They’ve Found...
... WITHOUT ANY DOUBT...

Is That They Know EVERYTHING... !!!
But INSECURITIES Live Within Their Skin... !!!!!

So They’re QUICK To INSIST...
That They’re... NOT STUPID... !!!

And Are... NEVER WRONG...
Which Is A... PROBLEM... !!!

They DON'T Deal In BLAME...
Is... What They CLAIM... ?!?

They See... “ People The Same “...

Except For Those People...
... OUTSIDE of Their Race... ?!?

They DON'T Get Angry...
But Can’t AGREE To DISAGREE... ?!?

WITHOUT Behaving Like A Child...
Tantrums Profiled... Within Their Moods...

But They’ll... TELL You...
That Their Always Cool...

I Mean These KNOW IT ALL's...

REALLY Have Some GALL...
And A Whole Lot of FRONT... !!!

But The PROBLEM With Their Talk...
Is That It... LACKS WISDOM... !!!

Their Visions Are Warped...
And... ILL - INFORMED...
Because They’re Born...
From ARROGANT Shores... !!!

Always Claiming To Know...
What They CLEARLY DON’T... ?

They DON'T APOLOGISE...
Because They’re ALWAYS RIGHT... !!!

So... DENIAL's A Friend...
That They Keep REAL CLOSE... !!!

So When They Start To Blow...
It’s BEST To Let Them GO...................... !!!

Because What Comes Next...
Are Things EXPRESSED...
That Clearly Should NEVER...
EVER Leave Their Heads... !!!!

I Mean... Who Is PERFECT... ?!?

But THEM They’re Too CLEVER...
To EVER... ACCEPT...

That They Could Be... WRONG...
Because They’re OH SO STRONG... !!!

In The Things That They Express...
EVEN WHEN They’re Out of Their Depth... !!!!

But In Times of STRESS...
It Seems That Their Heads...
Start To... EXPLODE... !!!

From Their CORE Node...
When Their Life’s On HOLD...
And Their Thoughts Go To Zones...
Where FRUSTRATIONS ROAM...

They Are Pieces of Work... !!!
When It Comes To The Words...
That They NEED To Be HEARD...

TELLING You Things...
That Are WEAKER Than Links...
That... CANNOT Resist...

BREAKING... Like News...
That CONFUSES TRUTH... !!!
With... Tainted Views...

That Make Me Now Conclude...

That There Are...
... MORE Than A FEW... !!!

Whose Lives LOOK All Good...
But When You Look UNDER The Hood...

They’ve Got... ISSUES... !!!
That Provide The FUEL...
For Them To... ABUSE...
In The Talk That They Use...

That Is The DOWNFALL...

of....

... “ The Know It All “... !!!
People sometimes... SM...MFH ... ?!?

Especially in these crazy times, be running talk, as if they're losing their minds, and they tend to be the kind in this set of rhymes !

What is my pride?
I'm a Baha'i, I study math and physics, and I study
martial arts.
Then this is where people may hurt me the most.
They will make my dimension into a lie,
contradict what I know so well.
A shove or a push, even a slap or hit only affects my body.
Hurting my feelings by making me feel unloved, that
is only my mammalian brain.
But defying my reason and insight - this is where I am
most weak.
To call my religion a plan of the Illuminati,
by calling my science untrue,
by saying I don't know anything of martial arts.
This is where the ego of the world now dwells:
within the reasoning mind.
This is where my testing will take place:
letting go of knowledge
to meet the words of the naysayer.

I will take your words and
transform them into love.
Then I will wait until I find a companion
heart, to tell my truth to.
reflecting on life mistakes and the movie "Creed" where Creed goes to jail for punching someone
A man is always
A man
Until he meets
A MAN
Then, he is
A boy
Genre: Observational
Theme: Silenced Ego
