We are the creatures of naivety
we often despise and condemn those who are always kind to us
yet we praise and glorify those who wished and brought
harm upon us.
Those who are
magnanimous, munificent and understanding
often are the ones we pushed away and
demand more of their generosity
spiteful, malevolent, callous, uncharitable,
inconsiderate and most of all
fake, insincere, duplicitous and a janus-faced
are the ones we
tend to let them linger around us,
tend to be kind to, hail, cheer and flatter,
all because we are blinded by their grand master
as the genuine and guileless characters
that we need,
we oblige to have in our lives and
crave to be apart of … .
therefore we are the creatures of naivety.
