Saviorself Complex

Superficial love

Claiming to emulate Christ

But you seize authority when you have no right 

And you're building a reputation of using

Those who you call family

You keep piling dynamite

In a pitch black room

Strike a match 

The countdown starts tick, tick, boom

The sound a life shattering 

A person who wouldn't care for herself

And laid her life down for everyone else

Superficial savior 

Looking for all who need rescuing

While enabling your own son's bad habit

I've had it with you

Look inside, you can't put band-aids on bullet holes

Festering and fragile

Save yourself or ask the Savior to save you

Admit you need help

Have you grown numb

Why won't you get out

You're no martyr, just a willing victim

Take the blame for both actions and inaction

That have bred this superficial savior complex

Which is built on nothing but pride

Put down the weight and pick up your cross

Not everyone else's

Those are not yours to bear

No one to rescue, stand on your own

And give that drug over to the One you keep trying to replace

Saviorself or watch your life explode

  • L. B. Mek

    what passion and controlled fury
    if this your emancipation song
    then count me
    as one of your pom pom waving
    cheer squad!
    soar Free, dream Big
    and stay Strong! dear Poet
    start small, make your life Great
    and have the last laugh
    let indifference, wash away your hurt
    and make today, count!
    (a powerful write!
    thanks for sharing, dear poet)
