Always One Twit
by Phronesus Disegno
Age Group: Adult
This poem is in honor
Of a beloved deceased aunt
To me she was a Goddess
Her knowledge was far from scant
I was only twelve years old
When she had to pass away
Her example was so profound
And I remember it to this day
She always knew the answer
To any question I ever had
To me she knew everything
When I was just a little lad
So many things she taught me
By example of her being
She encouraged my gaining knowledge,
Never held me back from seeing
So recently I was wondering,
When I get along fine with most
Why someone tried to tear me down
When I denied to let him boast?
Everyone has something special
With a viewpoint that's unique
But at times I hear great claims
Made with evidence that is weak
"Oh I'm so much of this or that,
I have powers beyond your ken!
I've secret knowledge from the spirits,
And I a master of all Zen!"
All he said was fine and good
And to me it seemed to behoove
To explore the honest Truth,
Ah yes, I asked him to prove!
But each time he became so angry
When I wouldn't worship his story
He wanted only to say the words
To recieve such magnanimous glory
So we argued for many months
I tried hard to keep the peace
But the nicer I seemed to be
His annoyances continued to increase
So I finally just gave up
And this statement I did make:
I looked him in the eye
And point-blank called him fake.
I went back to tell all my friends,
But found myself amidst their scorning,
For they tried to keep me from him
Having given me fair warning
They told me from the beginning
I should never have taken that leap
I didn't want to believe them
When they thought he was a creep
So there I was completely drained
And practically in a trance
Trying to find Truth in that person
When no one else gave him a chance
In my experience I have found
A little love turns things around
But I learned with him the hard way
He was nothing but a clown
For poeple who don't need drama
Won't become the sickling debtor;
Those who thrive on others' energy
Won't let themselves get better
And this made me reminded
Of my beloved aunt of the past...
As I think of him now less and less,
I reminisce her words at last:
"...In a group of loving people
Who all get along and have fun,
There will always be one TWIT
Trying to spoil it for everyone."
Author's Notes: Sorry for the rant, but hopefully most will find this poem to be an interesting (true) story of one of my past experiences. I guess the one thing that still irks me is, why this person of my past insisted he knew more about my thoughts and emotions than I knew myself, or why he tried to force me to believe that the underlying motives for my feelings and thoughts was what he said they were, which were a far cry from what I knew they were.
But I know why in retrospect. To tell him that his perception of me was very wrong, without his allowing me to correct him with the Truth that has taken me many years to find within myself (i.e., the fact that he did not care to honor and respect who I really was) , would have meant that he wasn't really a genuine psychic; or perhaps if he were, that he was intentionally abusing his gift for his own personal gain at the expense of other people. I think genuine psychics know how to listen to someone and admit when they are wrong, rather than attempt to maintain their ego, insisting that their "insight" is absolute truth, especially when it harms the other person.
I've associated with people who have genuine psychic abilities, and it has always been a pleasant and refreshing experience. Dare I say, everyone in the world has genuine psychic abilities to some extent, and those abilities should not be extinguished by wrong external influences that infiltrate within.
