Neophyting

megaphone3Self-ostracized
scorned
self-loathing as
blood-sport
worthy, not worthy;
worthy, not worthy –
worthy…not saying

pseudo-suicide by self
righteous indignation
how dare you
look at yourself in
the mirror, mirror on
the walls you build
keep people in, out, at
bay, and shrilly proclaim
I am
Somebody!
I am
Somebody!
I ammegaphone6
somebody needs to take me
seriously?
Are you kidding me?

I gave you my best
(having no worst)
you got the better part of
the deal I am willing to
make you hate yourself

let me go away
triumphantly blowing
my own horn until you
stop me
if you’ve heard this one
before
