More stories from Bernadette Johnson and writers in Poets and other communities.
Aardvarks are first
But bees feed us
Can’t you see the folly of
Doing them harm?
Everyone loves bees
For the honey
Golden nectar of the gods

Quick Note: As I was writing this I started thinking how preachy it might sound, but ultimately it’s really a message to me and whomever else might be listening. I’d been thinking of self-sabotage a lot the last week in many areas of my life..and came to a few realisations about why I do some things in the way that I do.. i.e operating out of fear rather than confidence etc and thus not attracting many good things because I don’t feel good enough. I think, for some, this is an unfortunate common thread in today’s society and greatly ties in with our true identities versus our perceived shortcomings which lead us to think of ourselves falsely.

they all ate her up
from top to bottom and from every side
they had a lot; they knew too much
they allowed themselves this little crack

To be sure, some of our idiosyncrasies may be less than endearing, but when they turn out to be a benefit, try not to gloat.
