These I seek (8th Nov 2020)

Brash and brawn and bombastic

Derision, arrogance and erratic

Division, delusion and ruthless

Vanity, ego and hubris

Although they form within me

It is not

These I seek

Power, control and deceit

To lie, to steal and to cheat

Narcissistic, jingoistic and aloof

To blame, to externalise, to excuse

Although they form within me

It is not

These I seek

Influence and inspiration

Toil and perspiration

Empathy and humanity

Love, compassion and dignity

Although they falter in me

It is only

These I seek
