Self-defence Pretence

Peacock Poetry

The older I get the more I find it difficult to be around people whose behaviour is largely ego driven. Not only do I find this behaviour irritating but it also makes me sad to witness people defending their vulnerability in such an extreme and compensatory way. We all have egos and we all act out of bravado now and again let’s face it but those who remain stuck in this mode make me feel really alienated.

False Security

Bravado is transparent

They see beneath the veil

The truth is quite apparent

It’s clear what makes you frail

When you’re all smoke and mirrors

The battle is alone

Our human traits endear us

Our masks leave us unknown

Your ego’s game is gallant

But time again it fails

Bravado is transparent

Have courage and unveil
