Poem: Predator vs. prey by Robin
Playing cool at high school
Not knowing it was me who was the fool
Playing girls with words; emotionally abusive
Saying anything to get my fix
Inner self’s hungry for attention
So needy for every bit of sexual tension
Receiving respect for the number of girls I had in bed
Physical abusing my body, not realizing this was a bit odd
Wanking on a daily basis, was definitely a lot
Self-abusing was a normal thing,
Ignorance not a fling
Living on consistent basis in my delusional oasis
Consciously sleeping with a capital ‘S’
Struggling through life, an imbalanced mess.
I’m sorry for causing these hurts, you see. I say this to everyone including me.
after all these years and tears
Eyes, heart and gut are now wide open,
what have I learned..
There is no excuse for any abusing.
But I see the world, increasingly opposing.
I hear: “Enough is enough, the curtain has to fall”,
For every abuser, predator and rapists above them all
A world on fire, anger raises higher
Predator vs prey, everybody’s walking their own way
Hunting to fill an emotional void
Or afraid of being exploit
As we swing from yin to yang and going astray
Are we not all wanting to go the same way?
A way to find balance in the opposites,
To feel we walk the path of light, no shit!
This ironic realisation hitting me in contemplation
That there is no separation, so no need for victimization
Pointing fingers from one to another
Isn’t that again ignoring your sister and brother?
The hate is justified with fight
Tension growing bigger, no light..
Adding darkness to a world on fire
Is not the outcome we desire
A creative solution is here; up for grabs
To slow down and turn within.
As the inner change creates the outer
letting all inner selfs shine
One self at a time…
