… Just So You Know

Without Self Discipline,
Self Destruction
or Self Deception reigns.
‘Knowing Your Enemy’
merely keeps you focused
upon a negative
which you should already
be moving on from,
being ‘Aware’ will suffice.
Commitment is not seasonal.
Love is neither
a fairy tale nor nightmare
but an Experience.
Revenge is Life’s
‘Get Into Jail Free’ card.
Karma has her own standards
and pays no mind to yours,
you’ll get no more nor less
than you do or do not deserve.
Sin is relative to the damage caused
whilst Hurt is Absolute.
Don’t ask for Forgiveness…
give Forgiveness,
but, always from a safe distance.
Take flattery with a pinch of salt.
Learn to say ‘No’ more often
and Judge by the Actions
at Play behind the Words.
