You Don't Know Me

To any person that has ever told me what I can or cannot do
You don't know me
You don't know what I can do
But let me show you
I can be mean and nasty too
I can bash you in any way I please
And with such delightful ease
You don't hesitate to point out the flaws
Well I have my own list growing
And I too can bring out the claws
My fury goes deep just as yours
The pain and hurt are ammo
Don't let me discourage you
But I'll be knocking on your doors
You can bet on that too
The me you've never imagined
Once my self control becomes unhinged
It is your pride that will be singed
For I have a fire inside me of the like you've never seen
Oh you think you're mean, let me show you mean
I will tear you up from the inside out
And the remains I have left
You will have to scout
They'll be scattered
And you will be shattered
You will be consumed by the rage I keep so tamed
The fetal position shall be your permanent state
I can be the worst that was ever named
You can fight me with all your hate
But I will win
I will be victorious
The way you fight is quite conspicuous
But I am worse because I bide my time
I plan my attacks and they are ferocious
My acts of defense are sublime
For now, my thoughts are concealed
And I'll go on ranting in rhyme
At the moment my rage is sealed
You go on and do you
Keep on telling me what I can and cannot do
I'll show you, I'll show you

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
