Lethal Obesity of Soul
Obese with judgments,
Heavy gavel to drop,
Always looking outward,
Missing internal seed,
That grows each day,
Pregnant yet can't see,
Belly bump of resentment,
Fertilized with each bitter thought,
Conceived in inner darkness,
Spewing out on others,
Volcanic release of fatness,
Next time pressure builds a little faster,
'Til consumed in cycle of projection, victim, narcissistic addiction,
Physical symptom of inner death,
Long dead before hit the floor,
Lethal obesity of soul.
