Narcissism (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #26)   Leave a comment

Narcissism is a hell
You don’t even know you’re in
You don’t notice all you lose
You only see when you win

You aren’t able to grow
Life unable to flower
The only things you can know
Are perfect in your tower

You are cursed to see it fall
Screaming your rage at the sky
Not seeing the world at all
Just yourself, until you die.

Self Reflection (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #21)   Leave a comment

People should spend more time in self reflection
Too many are checking out their reflection
Instead of working towards their goals and virtues
We spend time on Facebook for likes and for views
We should be working towards improving our self
But we leave all our dreams sitting on the shelf
We’ve become Narcissis, trapped in our own gaze
Locked in our own prisons, for all of our days
