What goes around comes around


You say it’s unfair, that you didn’t deserve it

I know the perfect thing to say, but I won’t say it

A million flashbacks run through my mind

Would you please rewind your memory to the time?

When you thought the world revolved around you

Oh! I’m sorry, you still think so, don’t you?

Things are still the same, there is, but one difference

You have become the joke that you once made at others’ expense

Call me all the names in the world, I couldn’t care less

I have no role whatsoever; you asked fate for this mess

I’m now over with what you did, over with being hurt and bruised and battered

Remember it’s always mind over matter; now I don’t mind and you don’t matter

The face looking at you that you call ugly and full of terror

Is actually karma showing you the mirror 😉

    Aggressive words they are!
    From the start till the end, every word is awesome! And true indeed!

    This is great!
    On many different levels.
    Life is filled with lessons to learn
    But what a shock when the center of attention
    learns that they are the proverbial joke.
    Great poem!

    I’m giving you a standing ovation! *clap*clap*clap*clap*clap* I felt like this when I got divorced and LOVE that you used a glimmer of Dr. Seuss’s quote “those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind”. 🙂

    • Alethea said,

      March 28, 2011 at 3:57 am

      Awww….a BIG hug coming your way!! And about the quote, I had read it somewhere and I knew I had to use it in some way in this poem but I had no idea whose it was. Thank you so much for the info.
      And, I’m super glad you liked it!!

    This is good… It’s difficult sometimes to write about your thoughts or a feeling but you captured it nicely.
