Revelation by me

 When you find yourself doing

What you said you would never do

Then you have lost your sight

And are searching to hard

Outside of you

For someone to complete

What really only you can do

Find the one inside

And be happy

With what is you

 

When you're hurting others

For your own protection

It opens in your wounds

That does't heal with words

Or sorrow filled expressions

For you can't take back

The damage you do

In a moments indiscretion

it stays in the memory

to continually abuse

It makes you realize you're someone

No one would want to be

Leading to shock and disbelief

Anger, frustration and self-pity

And you think, pretty righteous, I am me

 

And what direction you take

(after revelation)

Will determine the one you will be

Make the effort to change - or

Disappear into self

And be a bane to society.
