quick to judge

regardless of circumstance or afflictions

you paint  yourself in golden hues

conveniently ignoring your own vices & addictions

you misrepresent yourself, a hero

but your stories are all fictions

you don’t really stand for anything

with your tepid bathwater convictions

    Cutting. “You misrepresent yourself” – this is such a profound line on many levels. I see this a lot and it bugs the s***t out of me – lol 🙂
