How a soul can turn so abruptly
into something else, astounds me,
after many years of normality, being loving and kind,
turn into a habitual liar, a malicious manipulator
and someone you’d go out of your way to avoid?
How can a mind so family oriented,
so nurturing and outwardly happy,
resort to hatred, disdain and hurtful acts
against those who have loved her most,
supported her most in life?
How can a person become so evil in intent,
so damning in attack and so deluded to be unaware,
that every word that comes from her mouth
is directed pointedly to manipulate, to cause harm
and undermine innocents.
How can this person live with themselves,
not know their dark and malicious forays
are a refection of who they really are,
a self-centered, ignorant, unintelligent fool,
who has lost her family, and trust never to be restored?
I am appalled she still chooses to bare my name,
converses with my children,
has influence on my family
and those I have known for over thirty years,
and I and her mother,
having done nothing at all, bare the brunt of her fury,
her insane tirades and lies
that in the end class her as completely and mindlessly lost.
