Conceit

Pride, vanity, take your pick

Beat yourself with a big thick stick

Swollen and sore, still unsure

Critical words disguised as compliments

Cut deep to the core

Killer smile’s inflicts misery and pain

Turning sunshine to cold drizzly rain

Designed to protect, minds armoury bulges at the seams

But who can guard against truth telling dreams

Vulnerable, scared, exposed in the open

Having to feel every moment

Shake as you wake

Denial comes quick

Major ego, addresses his troops

“We are invincible, our cause is just”

Perimeter established, steel shell a must

Confidant, important, back in the game

Solitary playtime

Adoration and fame.

 

“Live for yourself and you will live in vain;
Live for others, and you will live again.”

Bob Marley
