This is the cup of the new and everlasting covenant
Shed for you and for all, so that our sins may be forgiven...

Do this in memory of Me.

In memory of the spooky parochial school halls
In memory of the wizened nuns, quietly obedient
In memory of the over-simplicity of rules
In memory of false piety laced with hypocrisy
In memory of crushing inadequacy

Do this, in memory of me, the child.

In memory of the child whose uniform never quite fit
Whose body developed too early
Who had trouble making friends
Who didn't have enough discipline

Do this, do that, don't do this, don't do that
So many tiny rules and expectations
to love, serve and obey

You once told me
you couldn't stand to see me
in another women's arms.
Now you've pushed me into them.

You once said
you'd never lie
to save my feelings,
but here we are

You once assured me
you'd always love me
even when I don't.
Now you're gone.

You said you'd follow me anywhere,
and I cant believe I believed you.

Every word you ever said to me
was empty.
No substance.
No weight.

You used to talk about future,
fate.
Just words to you.
Might as well
be ashes
in your mouth.
You did this. I'm done feeling like there's somthing wrong with me. Done with the gaslighting. I hope youre happy, truly.

The hypocrisy of your thoughts

Remembering your own flaws
Tear yourself apart so often
When you can't even quit your ego
Out of relationships, you run

Messed up with your own insecurities
You want someone to find you perfect
Unable to eradicate your own negativities
You wish someone could ignore your defect

How can you expect love from someone else
When your own life is on the broken shelf?
You wonder if anybody could ever love you
When you cannot even love yourself


While you see people smoking and drinking
You think they're being so cool
Comparing to them, you think you're dumb
Unaware that they're the biggest  fools

Tired up with your own challenges
You want someone to think you're strong
Unable to even prove yourself
You wish nobody assumes you wrong

How can you expect love from someone else
When your own life is on the broken shelf?
You wonder if anybody could ever love you
When you cannot even love yourself

You see people who inspire you
You watch everything they dare
Yet you think you can't do any better
It is in you what you're looking out there

Torn up with your own failures
You want somebody to appreciate you
Unable to even accept the challenges
You wish to be daring like quite a few

How can you expect love from someone else
When your own life is on the broken shelf?
You wonder if anybody could ever love you
When you cannot even love yourself

-By Sarah Khan
We've all heard that we should treat others like we want to be treated. But perhaps, we learned the reverse? Maybe, it should say, "Treat yourself with the same love and respect you want to show others." You must check this video on how guilty our thoughts make us. We aspire that people should think we're perfect, yet we're so messed up with our insecurities. We aspire that people think we're strong, yet we don't want to take challenges. We aspire people to love us, yet we can't even love ourselves. So, charity begins at home. Remember, Kim Namjoon had once said, "You're not ugly, you're just born in a judgemental society." We must not create the hypocrisy of our thoughts and think upon our actions the way we want people to think about us and love ourselves, the way we want others to love us.

Take away these brick and stones,
that we seek shelter in.
Take away the promises you once
pacified us all with.
Take away the blue skies above us,
and replace it with grey clouds.
Take away the land that your fraudulent
minds apparently amass.
Take away the nature which grew
it's roots deep into our souls.
Take away our property, wealth and trophies
that still reek of our sweat of ages.
Take away the media that we see
and blindfold her with injustice.
Take away but you can never take the soul
that keeps this land alive.
Take away but you can never take the knowledge
of your people.
Take away but you can't wipe the smile off
our children of soil.
Take away but we don't forgive nor forget.

Hypocrisy is its own critique.
The shadow of an argument that casts shade upon itself.
