We Are One/Are We?

The first discovery that narcissistic tendencies often lead to abuse may lead to a glimpse of freedom;

Or may enable self righteousness, becoming part of the distortion.

But upon further inquiry,

It seems that some souls are beyond repair

That they were never shown real love

Glimpses into painful pasts become hard to bear

Mothers and Fathers long gone will never be there

Lifetimes of insecurity as authority

Children within ever aging wrinkled bodies

Everywhere.

Freedom feels less free

The burdens of a failed society are alienating

Willingness to help?

Maintaining boundaries is taxing

Empathy is pain

Turning one’s back seems a symptom of grandiosity

And it could bring about the guilt

A mother might feel abandoning her children permanently.
