Desperation leads us astray

Some relationships are damaging

By Peter RosePublished 11 months ago 1 min read

Desperation for tolerance and affection,

Induces mistakes in personal selection.

Self-loathing and introspection,

The enemies of esteem and selection.

Repeat errors leaves no protection.

Allow mistakes and hide imperfection.

Causing pain with no deflection.

The hurts go deep, not just indentation.

In time surface heals but not reflection.

Overcome all worldly views , not affliction.

Need care and tolerant affection.
