No More Mr. Nice Guy

Laying on the ground, with my face in the dirt.

I’ve been kicked while I’m down.

I’m still strong, but I’m hurt.

I could lay here in agony,

For what feels like an eternity,

But it’s time to pull myself out from this plight.

It’s time to find my strength inside,

To prepare myself for one last fight.

~

Yesterday I was a pushover

Today, I’ll take no crap

It’s high time, my strong side takeover.

Any attack will be met by a counter-slap.

~

No more Mr. Nice guy

No more roll the dice and pay the price guy.

No more make-the-same-mistake-twice guy.

I’m going to embrace my Mr. Vice guy.

~

I want to lick my wounds of the blood,

You drew.

Before I spit it back at you.

“Take the high ground”, they say.

So why does a high ground feel so low?

No more victimization for me today.

~

No matter what the future brings,

No matter what it holds,

I’ll meet opposition on my feet,

I’ll aim to fight hard for all my goals.

~

To just roll over and let myself die,

Is an action, which I cannot comply.

Whether my woes are from another,

Or simply, ambitions which have left me smothered.

You’ll not just see me wail and cry.

I will one day prevail.

~

For my sword is raised up to the sky,

And it’s time right now,

To do or die!

  1. Damnnn, from Angel to rebel eh? Really loved this one 😊 Sometimes I think, I’m gonna stop being Mr. Nice Guy (or gal in my case) but I break under pressure πŸ˜• As you once told me, suffering’s a real bitch.

      1. Yep. I love the WP community spirit and am grateful for the chance it has given me to meet the good and creative folk I have.
        It’s system…….naahhhh…not so much (Nor Captain Spam Filter…looking at you Akismet!)

      2. That’s what happened to me.
        WP firstly suggested it was the choice of the recipients, recognising a cop-out I challenged that. WP were sympathetic but passed the ball onto Akismet, whose staff worship the Great God Techno, and spoke thus in its holy words, suggesting the same thing.
        Not being one to pursue matters I consider pointless (ie trying to get them to understanding ordinary English) I opted for my scorched Earth policy.
        Arkismet is no doubt the villain of the piece/peace with an over-enthusiastic and inaccurate spam filter.
