Tortured Soul

competitive intelligence for marketers

I am a tortured soul


not a victim of torture at victimizers hands

but a soul none the less.


I dislike pain

and avoid it

but not at all costs

seldom if any costs if truth be told


truth is a hard truth to bear

and seldom endured

without return


reasonableness is unreasonable in the best of times

I seldom know the scope of it

but often the war is clear


Pain is not so much a thing to be avoided

, as a barter amongst ragamuffins


Do unto your world as you want

and make it your own


let no man drive asunder

and divide and conque

what one has taken under wing


but never assume

assuaged guilt

is rebuilt

as recalled pride


they say pride comes before the fall

yet pride is generally what allows one to see the fall before it comes


the fall is more often presaged by over looking and lack of leaping

more to the merrier and less to the worrier


troubled souls lead to changed minds

lead to radicalized ideals

lead to muscular disinterested masses

amassing masses of riches


troubled souls and egos unreasonably troubled

are oft as not the source of misery and mastery

in equal handfuls.


Just a little poem I wrote on my phone a few months ago.
