Jean Park

To: Arrogance

What makes you think you are so much better than anyone else?
What makes you think you are so perfect in comparison Ė?
Are you more skillful?
Are you more inspiring?
You are nothing more than a hothead
Deaf to reality and logic
Burning like a forest fire
But really nothing more than
Dying
Fading
Ashes.
Let go of your jackass stubbornness
Because no matter how delusional you are
You can not deny
That you are a midget.
Be off!
You are not wanted here! You are not welcome here!
I would rather live
An eternity
Surrendered to the heavens
Than to be bound by your foolishness
Unable to break free of the tenacious hold you have on me
Paralyzed by the dark you blind my eyes by.
Donít you dare
Come back next year
Now that you have been utterly trampled by me.
