The Opinion Of Others

Does it ever really matter what they say?
After all, you do not know them anyway
Their pronouncements are mostly arbitrary
Forgotten quickly, totally unnecessary
Cheap wit, tiny thrill, easy scapegoating
A nice target, perfect for ego bloating

Is it not you who allows the words to bite
Allowing them great power, boosted might
Strangers writings, people you don’t know
Creating chaos, disrupting mental flow
Attacking with malicious, spiteful intent
No care of impact, just cruel discontent

Insults are easy, much easier than praise
To spit bile and cruelty, put one in place
More important to be right than to be nice
If another one suffers, such is the price
One cannot endure another’s phlegm
Unless you are weak enough to allow them
