Cyber Troll

Hide undercover,
in a dark hooded cape,
draping the body
you try hard to escape.

Spew evil phrases,
if given a slight chance.
Hoping your victim
joins in your silly dance.

Repetitive words,
with no substance at play.
Riding on coattails,
using people as prey.

Sorry, you feel bad
forced to hide your sad face.
Maybe one bright day,
your healed heart will find grace.

Till that day arrives,
eat some sweet humble pie,
stop judging others,
look within your own eyes.

Find where you fall short
go to where ego hides.
Then pick yourself up,
gain some authentic pride.

The pain that you cause,
does not improve your shine.
Try changing your ways
so your heart can feel fine.

Life offers balance,
every day and all night.
Listen to your soul,
it can guide you to light

– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy

  1. Wow, this is strong and powerful writing. I felt each line, you made the emotion so palpable and relatable. You truly are the amazing Grace…oh so talented indeed!!! I absolutely love this one, different from your usual but so intensely strong!! Can’t wait to see what you do next!

  2. Yr kindness and compassionate suggestions will likely fall on deaf ears. Dontcha think so? are you a person who might say “If only one person out there hears me and is changed somehow…”
    I applaud you but then you might spend yr energies making nice people nicer

    1. Thanks for your feedback Namelessneed. My suggestions may or may not fall on deaf ears, but that doesn’t really matter to me since I am not writing to anyone in particular. I am simply using this as a platform to express my thoughts. Worst-case scenario, if I am able to affect nice people so that they behave nicer, I will try my best to pat my own back. ❀️

  3. So inspiring, Grace! Particularly I liked β€˜try changing your waysβ€˜ and β€˜listen to your soul’. Well penned πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ’

  4. πŸ’– Grace πŸ’–
    This was superb and maybe has something to with our earlier convo.πŸ€—

    Neeways…… This line:

    “Maybe one bright day,
    your healed heart will find grace”.

    If they find you Grace then they are sure to be brighter❣️❣️

    I know I am … life is better with Grace β€οΈπŸ€—πŸŒ·
