“Caw! Caw!” cries out Crow.
“Are you finally tired of feeling below all those you know?”
Worn out. Tattered.
Once again He flew to my side –
“Stop fueling the flames of disrespect.
Put all of that self-loathing off to the side.
Social Butterfly floating…..
on those demanding
that your life be by their commanding.
Now look at your life through my eyes.
Now – Now can you see the lies?
Can you see the chains of gentle deception?
Can you feel the weight of self-deception?
Do you know how the disrespect grew?
You grew it first inside of you.
All those times you gave up your voice
and let your actions be actions of their choice.
Now is the time to unravel the doing
and undo the raveling of your heart and soul –
Now is the time to respect yourself,
and make them see that you are whole!”
For the first time in years
without any fears
you will finally ‘hear’ what I have to say!!
My life is my own.
My soul is my home.
I expect respect –
No more disrespect!!!
Enough is enough!
I am done with this.
There is no more bending.
Nothing more to go awry or sent amiss.
So now – if you dare
Look through Crow’s eyes.
That’s it – look – take a good stare.
What do you see that you can’t deny?
