Here’s To Self-Pity - Poem by Ronel O'Reilly

Let’s have ourselves a pity party
throw in some gigantic
slices of chocolate cake
and multiple glasses of wine
play some sad tunes
and while we’re at it,
elaborate on what made us
all so miserable

Let’s contaminate our self-esteem
by changing into victim-mode
and nurture our “I hurt so much”
furthermore, blame anyone else
for putting us in this swamp
of self destruction and
robbing us of our joy

So, do stand up, raise our glasses
let’s toast to all of us
wallowing in self pity
