Born of Resentment

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Set the Mood


Is it better to live a lie,

Hide your tears when you cry,

Let it all pass with a sigh,

Embracing that the end is nigh?

Yet we see that it is not,

So I’ll call you an ignorant snot.

Strike you down without further thought,

In your lies you will get caught.

I’ll be the hand that strikes you down,

Bury you beneath unhallowed ground.

No one will hear you make a sound,

Stay afloat or else you’ll drown.

The sea of pain that I swim through,

Massages from me a gentle coo.

This is something you cannot do,

Just remember I’m stronger than you.

I’ll cut you down like a tree,

Strike the base you cannot see.

Laugh quite hard as you look at me,

On deaf ears falls your plea.

So you’ve fallen and I move on,

Looking toward a brighter dawn.

Enjoy being God’s latest pawn,

I’m looking at Him with my bowstring drawn.

For behind you he will stand,

God is nothing but a weak man.

He built his kingdom on pillars of sand,

And I find his defenses weak and bland.

I Don't Like People

In these mental states where I seem to be falling apart nothing could be further from the truth than saying that I'm just going through a rough time, because I am not. It is as if I'm sitting on a mountain that overlooks a giant lake, and the reflection on this lake plays the evils of the world. People are what I see here, their Gods and the doings of all, and it all disgusts me. When it comes down to it, people disgust me and their opinions even more so.

Woe is me, being in the grips of self-destructive behavior, let the light shine through only briefly and stomp it out for the sake of clarity.

Yes, Mitara, with every stumble and fall we must be ready to pick ourselves back up to try once more, stronger than ever. Thank you for reading.

In times of despair its through hard times you find who will really stand by you through it all. I can say patience and it will come, but to be patient you need to have self sustainment, and your purpose has exposed itself to others.

People may put you down, but you get right back up and hold them up giving them motivation.

Nice one Kyler

RoadMonkey, I believe this dark poetry to be a source of my own light and it can shine as a beacon of hope to others that if they are going through dark times they don't have to suffer in silence. It is okay to struggle, to let the darkness out, and to cry for help.

Thank you, Sylvia, I appreciate you reading my poetry.

Sylvia Awino on March 30, 2020:

Fascinating read,especially at this time of the corona virus Pandemic. People are keen to run to reliogion and misuse it to bully and prosecute others.

Let the light shine through. What can you do to help it?

Amen Kyler, you arevwise beyond your years!!!

Kyler J Falk (author) from California on March 29, 2020:

Thank you, Laurinzo, as are you. I'm the type to believe our relationship with God(s) should only be personal. No need to press our relationship with them on others, only to point out evil and defeat it.

Laurinzoscott from Kanab, Utah on March 29, 2020:

Amen to that...Kyler it is so unfortunate when humans try to speak for GOD...its such a personal relationship...you are AWESOME!!!

Religion was bleeding into my every thought yesterday, was feeling surrounded by religious nonsense born of selfish men's teachings to sway the masses to their movements. It was just a mutated amalgam of my thoughts.

"Just remember im stronger than you..."

An anthem for those adversely affected by the illusion that is love...but I didnt understand your references to God, however you always produce an interesting read...I pray you continued blessings...
