Foolish Me

Foolish Me

b46fe9872b5274ce150548360689e3b5

Fooled again

Am I always the fool?

Do you target me

On purpose

Knowing my soft & sensitive

Heart …

Such a game you have played

With me all these years

Yet

Looking at me now

You seem confused

You see strength instead

A force you cannot break

Where has my sensitivity gone?

Has it turned into steel?

Trying to lure me back

But I’m not receptive to you

Not right away

Or as quickly as you like

So you are taken back

By this sudden force of strength

That I now, somehow possess

So am I the fool

Or has that become you

Fooled by my change

My wisdom has taken action

I stand tall and proud

I am still the same

Sensitive and sweet heart

But I am stronger now

I cannot be broken down

So easily

As before

So don’t be troubled

Don’t keep trying to break me down

Forget about winning

Try not to defend yourself

Because you have become the fool

Your actions foolish

A display of your own insecurities

Fool me, not again

Dearest acquaintance

As I watch

As you have become the fool

Fooling no one

But yourself

As I am no one’s fool

  1. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.

    You are a strong person. Not what they expected to find. Well don you. Keep strong.
