Keeping-Ones-Word

Howdy folks! 

VERY, VERY few people actually keep their word. Hence, the same goes for being able to absolutely trust as well. If a person can't or doesn't keep their word, they cannot be completely trusted either. Elementary!

Trust has two phases. First, one has to trust another with something and then second, watch and listen carefully as to how another treats what they were trusted with. It's in how the other person regards what they were trusted with that tells the tale of whether or not they are a trustworthy individual. I've learned well to 'test the waters' first with something minor or with something I won't care if it gets around and sometimes even with something I want to get around. The results have been VERY few people pass the test with almost everyone I've tested flunking out bigtime. Needless to say, those tested and flunked, I don't ever then place any trust in them again. "Burn me once, shame on you; burn me twice, shame on me!"

Keeping One's Word is a rare find today,
Since VERY few follow, do what they say.
Words are so easy to dispense and spew,
But require investment to follow them through.

When in confidence to someone you speak,
Can you really be sure, they will not leak
Anything said in private to another soul;
Can they really be trusted to be not a mole?

VERY few can be believed, trusted this much,
And in your absence, when you're out of touch,
They'll tell another what they swore they would not
And it's not because they simply forgot.

So many times I've heard the same ol' line,
"It's between you and I; don't worry, it's fine",
Only to discover eventually and learn,
What was said in private did come back, return.

How many will promise there's something they'll do,
But then forget what they said and don't follow through?
Then when you ask them about doing what they said,
They react with belligerence to fault you instead.

VERY few people actually will ever keep their word
And when they renege, they'll claim you've misheard.
If you then prove to them what in fact they said,
Don't expect apologies, just insults instead.

Keeping One's Word is indeed, a VERY rare trait
That only a character of excellence will cultivate.
One who does not can never be trusted completely,
If they place no value on behaving discreetly.

Monster

Howdy folks! 

Anyone who creates havoc in another person's life and/or causes another pain, unpleasantness, stress, grief, etc., in my book is a MONSTER! 

"Monster"

Everywhere I go a monster tags along,
No matter what I do, everything is wrong. 
It seems he has attached himself to my life, to me,
No matter what I do, I can't of him shake free.

I do not wish to slay the monster,
He just needs to get a life,
One that doesn't cause me
All this stress and strife.

His life must be a pathetic one
If it's so important for him to
Stalk me on the Internet and 
Eavesdrop on my phones, too.

Then because he didn't like
What I, to a friend, said,
He destroyed the harddrive,
Made my computer dead.

Many friends fear the monster
And so their distance keep,
But I cannot blame them
For fear of what they'll reap.

If they should be too close,
Or stand in my defense,
Because he is a jealous monster,
Wrath he will dispense.

Male friends who are
Especially close and dearly,
He hates fiercely and so,
Then punishes me severely.

So this battle I must fight
Mostly by myself, alone,
Praying for the strength
I'll need to be my very own.

But the day will come when,
At last I will be free
Of the monster who delights in
And lives to torment me.

To the Monster stalking me,
I just have this to say,
"There is inside of you
A better person than you display."

Beauty-Within

Howdy folks! 

Only a person who cares about another enough will see beauty in the other person, when others won't or can't. I believe every person has beauty within them in spite of the ugliness they may be projecting. It's just that you have to look more closely and carefully to find and see it. There is within a Rose Amidst The Thorns.  

"The Beauty Within"
(image pending)

Oh, great King, AikanΓ‘ro be thy name,
Have seen your mighty strength, been singed by your flame.
With an air of arrogance, a mountain full of pride,
A thicket of projections methodically applied;
High upon a pedestal, although up there alone,
You present yourself to which no one can atone.

But, you cannot hide what's deep within, concealed,
In spite intentions driven, for magic has revealed
A warm heart beating, romantically inclined,
Kind, gentle, yet strong, with an independent mind.

Only one that cares enough to pursue beyond your cover,
Will appreciate the soul within, be pleased to discover,
The elements of a rogue are just a masterful disguise,
But for a true believer, the reflections in your eyes
Speak in silence clearly, to tell a different tale,
For a rose lies in waiting, its beauty to unveil.

When the day has come, in the mirror you do see,
The greatest power within you has yet to be set free,
It is then you will be granted, a power unsurpassed,
And the darkness in your heart shall be out forever cast.
