Vindicating A Curse, Part 3
by Phronesus Disegno
Age Group: Adult
Let me tell a little story
That I can assure is true
And if perhaps you can relate
It may just work for you
In my life from time to time
Someone gets mad at me
And if indeed I "am" at fault
I make mends best as can be
But sometimes they are angry
Just because I disagree
Caring not for my opinion
They want only to silence me
And if they practice Magic
They may warn me of their curse
That I must abandon my Truth
Or they'll make my life much worse
But you see, here is a secret
In a stupidity game like this
Don't bother to cast protection,
Yes, ensure their curse won't miss!
Let it find its way to you
When it does, it creates the link;
No need to react with fear
Hold still for a moment, and think:
You can play tug-of-war and win
Stealing more than they wanted to give
'Til the link drains them just enough
That it severs and cannot live;
You can do what they did on Star Trek
The attacker becomes the dupe
Reverse polarity of all they send,
Hellacious inverse feedback loop;
Rend and wrench your end of the link!
'Til your enemy falls in the abyss!
Change the battle to an all-out WAR!
Then again, let me ask you this:
Could there be an easier answer?
'Cause there's one last option to find:
To let go of your end of the link,
It is done once you make up your mind.
Is the real purpose for such fights
Though it may seem like selfish greed
A demand from the other person
That they must care for what you need?
And what, may I ask, might happen
To know what SELF-caring is first?
Those who care for themselves as for others,
Almost never experience a curse.
Author's Notes: My mother always told me that no one can have power over you if you choose not to think about them. My dad always told me that no one can have power over you if you understand why they are the way they are.
My mother always told me that it helps relations if you can accept people for who they are, without trying to change them. My dad always told me that friends influence and change each other.
My mother always told me that the hardest thing to do is learn how to love yourself. My dad always told me that the hardest thing to do is learn how to love someone else the way they need to be loved the most.
My mother always told me to forgive the people who have done me wrong, to preserve relations where possible. My dad always told me to forget the people who have done me wrong, to sever relations that need to end.
I used to think they were in conflict with each other, and incidentally, so did they. But now I see that they just balanced each other, they were both right for different reasons and under different circumstances. And I was always in the middle, trying never to take sides. It's nice to have a choice. ;-)
