Your Cruelty

Updated on July 23, 2013
Source



Cruelty is easy for you;

You breathe it in and out like a mantra


Anger buzzes around you like flies;

Waiting to land on raw flesh


Source

Bitterness eats at your very soul;

Like maggots consuming a corps


Resentment has castrated your heart;

Leaving you impotent, unable to impregnate a single kindness


Source

Darkness is your mantel;

You wear it against the winds of hopelessness and despair


In the end;

You will stand broken, lost, and alone

      Thank you for the read Malin. It is sad that cruelty seems to be flexing its ugly muscles more, and more in this world. We all need a reminder to keep it far from our hearts!

      Wonderful Poem Miss IKim. I know so many people who would fit this description, which really is so sad. Thanks for a reminder to all of us of it's destruction.

      Thank you Sueswan for your comment and vote; indeed, we will be broken and alone if we allow these negative emotions to fester within us.

      Mimoma, don't we all know someone who exhibits these traits from time to time? We may not see all of them, and maybe not all at the same time. There are even days when I think I see a speck of this person staring at me from the mirror.

      I agree ExoticHippieQueen; as soon as we recognize this beast, banishment is the only option.

      Wow, Kim, short but extremely potent! This is magnificent! Cruelty deserves much examination for the abomination that it is, so that it can be immediately recognized and banished!

      "Anger buzzes around you like flies; Waiting to land on raw flesh"

      Such a descriptive poem. Pictures are great but the words stand on their own.

      Cruelty, anger , bitterness and resentment will leave us broken and alone.

      Voted up and awesome.
