It seems that I’ve forgotten,
The people who won’t leave me despite my attitude that’s rotten.
It seems that I’ve replace them with liquor & fun.
I’m not even minding their tears which weighs tons.
They’ve already cried billions of it.
That’s because I’ve forgotten of the dark pit.
Which I used to be in & they helped me out.
I let myself be blinded by the limelight route.
A route that leads to a living & a money.
A route which I thought would give life & make people happy.
It seems they’re more worried & anxious now.
Instead of giving them joy, I’m giving them a stressed out Tao.
Their auras are no longer positive.
Their minds are clouded with worry & the word “negative”.
I thought they’re just being paranoid,
I thought they’re just making me annoyed.
Yet after one talk with my life partner,
I realized I’m the one who’s becoming sour.
A person who treats people with negligence,
A person who treats people with indifference.
Making everyone a stranger,
Making everyone a spectre.
Unknown & invisible, I didn’t care.
Always saying “I’ll get home, I swear!”.
Then while my partner was scolding me,
I said to my mind “Here we go again Kreggy”.
But then her words sunk in,
Giving me an epiphany from within.
We then received a text message from my brother.
He said “I dreamed you were in a car & fell off a cliff with our father”.
I froze instantly on my ground,
I realized something for the first time around.
My partner & my brother worrying for me
& both of their worries couldn’t have been more timely.
I opened my eyes of how much I didn’t care.
I realized how much of a douche bag I was.
Then I made myself a poem & it was:
“I will never neglect the people who truly love me, I swear”.
