…and out come the vultures

i dont know how many snakes are in my midst
relying on kindness is alot easier that relying on trust
because you don’t have to wait to see what happens
and I am a shaking, distracted mess

i have to deal with insurance agents
identity theft in the form of old friends
claiming to want to make a direct donation
to my bank–even my wallet was stolen
in the nanosecond i got distracted
oh, and a curmudgeonly professor
is aiming at my scholarship
three months before my graduation

i just lost everything
do they really want to take what’s left?
I guess I’ll find out
right in time for Christmas
how destroyed i really am

    1. I don’t know if it helps, but here’s a thought: It’s possible that people only seem wicked but aren’t really. Their real fault lies in being ignorant (about the self, about their heart, about what’s important to them, etc), rather than that they have evil intentions. Maybe there’s no real “enemies” around at all, and everyone is really a friend waiting to be made; it’s just that we’re just more likely to be surrounded by stupid and ignorant people than intelligent and smart ones — just because ignorance and stupidity is more common, and that is how probability works.

      I guess I’m just trying to say (in another roundabout way) that it might be easier to forgive others if we realize that they really don’t know any better. Perhaps knowledge would make them better….
