Wanting and poor self-esteem…
I ask why
and know too well,
the imperfections that guide hearts to lost:
lost from all hope of return,
lost to the cynical, malice driven responses to life,
to resolutions that consider only the self,
and in unfolding create much hurt.
It’s always a shock
to what extent people will hurt
just to maintain illusions,
and in resolution be justified,
a mind so bereft of reality,
it can do and say anything
just to remain in denial of truth.
I know, yet have to watch it unfold,
and there’s no reasoning,
not explanation that placates a deluded mind,
for they are an island, separated from the world,
abiding by their own
in the adoption of a created reality,
fashioned from fear and protection.
I ask why, but know
often there is no reason,
just the mechanics of delusion’s self-centered deeds,
the process that upholds stability
in an unstable mind,
exacting and venting pain to elevate
the poor self-esteem that plagues a wanting life.
