The Empowered Target

You drummed your propaganda into my head

You attempted to fill me full of fear and dread

You thought you’d forever put me to sleep

By filling my ears with your words so cheap

But I eventually stirred, yawned, and awoke

Eventually released myself from your yoke

Got rid of your anchor and changed my berth

On that blessed day when I realized my worth

Into my life great blessings began to flow

Fresh blessings and opportunities knocked at my door

I transcended your pettiness

I scoffed at your wretchedness

Rose above your abuse

This battle I didn’t lose

Your pathetic attempts to project

No longer have their previous effect

I smirk at your buffoonery

I laugh at your douchebaggery

I scoff at your attempts to verbally batter

Because your views no longer matter

Do what you say you’ll do if you dare

What you’re going to do, I don’t care

        • Thank you so much, Kym! Right now, I’m also having problems with my blog. For whatever reason, wordpress isn’t letting me like posts today and for the last few weeks, it isn’t letting me follow new sites I like. I’m chatting with support now. Love you, girl. If you don’t see me for a while, you’ll know why. Thank you so much, sweetie! God bless you! 💖🌹🌺🌻💐

          • That is so weird Cherie, because I actually have to search for your posts and comments. And now that you mention it, it has been a few weeks since this has been going on. I sure do hope they can get you squared away. Take a deep breath because like everything else, this too shall pass. Just hang in there girlie! 🤗💖🥰🦋😘🎉😍💋🥳💞
