Bitterness

Photo By: celeste clothard
The first bite pretended to be sweet
So you took on more than you could eat
Going for seconds you filled your plate
Never realizing the severity of what you just ate
Devouring what they gave you begin to choke
Before you knew it their words had crowded your throat
Biting off more than you could chew
The actions of others stuck to you like glue
Bitterness is a hard pill to swallow
So in self-pity you decided to wallow
You let years go by without defecating
Your soul without warrant you began castrating
For years you let it eat at you like a disease
Until the people around you started to leave
Trapped in your own hell you seem content
Falsely accusing others to the fullest extent
Dismissing your very own mistake
Not pondering on all that you ate
Take the time to learn from the lesson
That things in disguise are a blessing
That people who try to get the closest
You can learn to take them in small doses
Instead of taking on a full course
Realize that you control the source
You can bite off as much or as little as you choose
If you only take what you can handle you can’t lose
