Blind Fool

Rating: 4.5
I lost it and it cost me
I let it take hold
this is where it got me
walking blind fold

My insecurities brought me here
I saw the signs: Beware
but I refuse to take notice and tackled on
now here I am,
Finally taken off the blind fold
stranded in the middle of nowhere
a place where only fools reside
alone with my pride

We are all blind fools now and again. Blinded by love, hate, money, drugs. No one walks with total sight, nice poem.

Hi Kelvin, All of life is lived behind a blindfold, If we could see everything before we made our decisions no one would ever make a mistake, the real skill is to make the right choices when we can see clearly. I shall read more of your work and Thankyou for your own kind comments.

Life is about letting go. Holding on to a sinking ship will only drown you and fill you with regrets. Forgive past mistakes and always move forward. By doing so, it takes you away from the bad experience and you will gain wisdom to live again.

Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us. by Jane Austen a well said just like this poem which shows how excessive pride can lead us to loneliness and dead end a tell well told thank you for sharing it best wishes, payal
