Recognition Poem

 

Written by Ari Bouse

 

A positive self talk mantra asserts that the energy of recognition helps you take a different look at yourself. We often have a lot of self-criticism, which influences our self esteem in a negative way. Fear is often the barrier for doing what we really wish to do. Recognize yourself! Recognize others!

 

Devil inside, are you a better con artist than you are conning yourself into buying into?

Dark Nights of the Soul reveals light at the end of the tunnel.

She illuminates the shadows.

Us and Them segregations are cognitive distortions!

The blind man with his dog on vacation could have seen the Elephant In The Room coming . . .

In the beginning, there was the word.

And discipline derives its ancestry from the Latin root to teach.

A Higher quality of respect comes from feeling safe to learn,

even through peaceful and non-violent forms of tough love.

Fear of consequence avoids taking responsibility.

Karmic leveling impulses are not without natural and logical consequences.

They are not always seen and heard.

    Thank you Edge of Humanity for publishing this poem. Also, thank you Patrick and Daily Poetry for your comments. I really appreciate them. It’s humbling that you are recommending my writing to others and found it worth letting your mind go over the page a couple of times. A heartfelt bow to you both.
