Tyrant Tales


Each word like a knife cutting deep

Slivers of my shield he did deplete

He has no sense of humanity

But are a true tyrant of meanness and vulgarity

Hurling criticism everywhere never a praise

Continual attacks you learn is not a phase

Exposing that little girl that did weep

Once upon a time in her deep sleep

Many years of toil of diversity embraced

So easily shattered with harmful words of distaste

By a Tyrant who enjoys to make people squirm

Harmful words cutting like burns

Good people’s qualities and confidence tossed

Too late for him to undo the loss

Visions of grandeur will not make him bend

His own ignorance and inexperience will determine his end

Blinding the purpose of his very existence

Learning nothing but destroying everything of resistance

Karma will shadow him until it’s too late

He won’t recognise his faults before his deserved fate

Though I can be made to feel the knife deep

I am now wiser and won’t go down in defeat

          1. Agreed, in the last couple of years I have discovered a routine, that has worked thus far, I can’t tell you how many journals I have begun that fill the first 70 pages and then the remaining pages blank out. Now routine, has me writing frequently, despite a busy schedule … 🙂

              That’s what you need to achieve writing a book so this is a good routine you have


              1. I hope so, thanks – I would love to dialogue directly with your free-lancing sometime if you ever feel compelled …

                You should check out Weekend Notes but that site is more about things to do or maybe Hub Garden they have all sorts of websites depending on your interest to write for, its not much money but can be a thrill to see your work published.

    I had to come back and read this again. I identify with your words so completely, having recently experienced something the same. I hope your wound is an old one and if not, that Karma does her work as I hope she’ll do mine.
