Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance.
-- W. Clement Stone
My writing is not in the criticizing gear
sometimes showing our humorous side
often trying to make our flaws look clear
maybe to inspire, and then help to decide.
While it may look like pile of negative crap
it's merely pointing at some pitfalls of game
dumping responsibility on everyone's own lap
for their life outcomes -- with no others to blame.
Ignorance and jealousy may see it all as a "cult"
but my niche has always been more than clear
reminding reading man that now he's an adult
with a free will and power to snap out of fear.
Breaking free from anyone's manipulation
has been my theme in much of what I write
my highest ideal always being self-liberation
but to have noticed that takes someone bright.
To call it a "cult" is not only downright insane
as my "disciples" would be ridiculously few
but may also point at an issue of the brain
when some total lies are pushed as true.
Agony over shaken popularity will do its charade
always finding loyalists to join that pathetic craze
blind leading blind with hopeless need to degrade
forever in that bond created by their mutual praise.
