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
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.
