I apologize for this venting poem, but being the target of malice is not easy, especially when its unwarranted and based on formulated lies, so carefully orchestrated to serve a planned agenda. I feel pity for people like this, so lost within the self, truth is no longer observable.
Not easy to turn the other cheek,
accept the blows of vilification,
even knowing innocence doesn’t help,
for under attack we feel vulnerable,
yet fighting back is puerile,
maintains the conflict, and you wonder,
when will the truth arise, be known.
Faith in life and the laws of the universe
will eventually rescue the maligned,
but such hurt and harm may come to the innocent,
and that I often question,
as justice is not always served in our time,
and that is frustrating,
knowing how we have been misrepresented.
It so taints my feelings for some people,
so easily led, so judgmental,
and ready to slander someone on hearsay
from the motives of someone with an agenda,
a planned and thought out malicious attack
that puts them in a better position,
or as they so perceive.
I try to practice kindness in my life,
my ideal of love paramount to my being,
yet I struggle to forgive someone
who’s intent on destroying my relationships with people,
and who continues to sully my name
with lies that are so against my principles,
yet I am still persecuted.
I have faith that truth will light the darkness,
and I must hold onto that,
so I ask that the lairs and manipulators of the world,
find their truth and relent on hatred and disharmony,
for the world needs healing and love is the only way,
to remedy the insecurities and fears
these people have inside.
