Pride, prejudice, and pettiness

Photo by Michael Burrows on

The only real passion you held

Was your own self-admiration

Seeing success in materialism

Gaines off other’s misfortunes 

You despised anyone- different  

Who offered commoners help  

Or gave away valuable advise

Entirely secured in themselves    

It made you colder and cunning

Relationships were but punitive

Praise was your drug of choice

You loved the taste of revenge   

Yet, you go to bed humiliated

Incapable of being …charitable
