Spells, Voices and the Eternal Debate

“People suck
And they’re never who they seem,
Long ago you’d think I’d have learnt that, you see.
People are rude and selfish and lie,
People are two faced, devious and wry.
Everyone has the leading role in the movie in their head,
While all the others are merely cast…
cast aside when their use is met.
People are scum
And they’ll eat you all up,
Sociopathic vampires
Preying on the love.
People are cruel, insensitive and fucked,
Nevermind the headgames, you know your time is up.
With your heart they will play, and claim affection today,
And on the morrow they’ll change their tune,
And you’ll feel the ostracism soon.
Use you as a puppet for their own twisted glee,
People suck, why cant you see.”

And this was spoken in a tone hissed at length,
By an inner dark voice hidden in the depths.
Sick of sittin back and lettin this heart ache,
She said no more of this heartbreak do I take.

And with a shake of her head, she looked to me and said
“Do not trust them all my girl,
Keep your heart to yourself.
There is too much deceit in this world,
And not much I can do to help.
So heed my words real careful girl,
For amongst the wolves you are but a lamb.
And in this venture you will get hurt.
You have to understand
The very nature of man”

A new voice utters from the depths,
“And what if on this fear of pain and rejection of the soul,
Results in nothing more than lonliness untold”
A voice of reason? Of fact based thought
No, Reason died and left a void…
This, the voice of hope is heard,
Who had felt the joy and was now disturbed.

“Do not hide your soul in fear,
They’re not all wolves at all my dear”

I’m not convinced
I’m confused as hell
How does one break free from these spells…

“You give yourself away too much”
The voice of despair cries,
“And in this trip you’ll come out last”
Voice of defeat by their side,
“You never know it could be good”
Where this one’s from i cant be sure,
Its rather small and quickly muted by all the others roar.

“Dont be a fool.
People are cruel,
You’re unfortunately too damaged to take another fall”
What is this voice,
What is its agenda…
Why cannot it allow me thoughts of surrender,
Surrender to the risk,
Surrender to the spell,
Without the fear of possibly,
Having my heart quelled.

Then a little light
sparked within the corners of my mind,
A flicker of a notion that my hurtin days were gone.
With glass half full and a smile upon her lips,
The voice was inspired and said somethin like this-

“People can be kind,
And some are who they claim to be.
People are fragile, and some like to retain some mystery.
Everyone has the leading role in the movie in their head,
But not all ‘stars’ will cast aside the others on the set.
People are so precious, so full of life.
And all have their own demons to contend with in their lives.
Genuine hearts,
Looking to connect.
There are those who are worth your time,
And the effort that you spend.
Some people can be trusted,
With your heart and soul and song…
Not all of them will fuck you over once a better offer comes along.
These People are gems you’ll find amongst the rough.
But recognising them from the rest,
is the trick you will find tough”

How do I know,
How can I tell.
Which is genuine,
Which is a spell.

No answers now,
Only silence in the air.
The voices have gone quiet,
But I do not really care.

They receede to the depths,
Of this fragmented mind.
Waiting for the opportune moment to arise.
I continue on my way,
And think about my life.
Pondering the mysteries,
And the questions,
The strife.
