       i'm tired of being preached to...

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    I'm tired of the self-righteous
    with their high heads,
    proud eyes and stiff necks

    They look to other punctures,
    not noticing their gaping wounds
    Not caring of their own blood

    Speaking out to me,
    telling me of all my woes
    offering double-bladed words

    Telling me to change my ways
    watching my path,
    measuring my steps

    But I like my dark mind
    with all it's little corners
    and secret boxes

    It's always an adventure
    just beyond the far wall,
    lurks the unknown

    Hang the self-righteous,
    air out their words
    and root up their hypocrisies

    People do not need chains,
    break the iron shackles
    and live a life, free of judgment and shame.

      It's nice to see that when people piss you off you produce work of this calibre! I like the message behind it that people shouldn't be put down by self rightous [censored]s. Cozy in a strange way!

    How original of me, starting out a comment using YOUR WORKS. Heh, anyway, I thought it was very well done, you did a good job purveying those high nosed, tight lipped, "know"-it-alls. Stayed on track and acomplished, well I think, what you meant to get across.

    It was a pleasure, Bonnie

      this is a great piece- i liked it a whole lot. in fact, i just recently wrote a piece a lot like it called "Be Careful" that i posted a week or so ago. This piece hits very close to home. I loved the way you likened lies to double bladed words- i thought that was most creative. great work here.

      It's alright. Who pissed you off this time?
    An error, but very easily fixed:
    and life a life, free of judgment and shame.
    The first life should live.
    I'm not sure I stayed with you all the way, but I got your point. It seemed as if you wondered a little, but it might have just been me.
    Good write.
