Poems from Another Lifetime Part 9
by Marijo Phelps  
10/07/2010 / Poetry


This is part of a series of poems which were written years ago before I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Some were written when I was a professing atheist and an alcoholic. If you have read my pieces since I came to Jesus I think the contrast is evident.


Poems from Another Lifetime Part 9

THE ACTRESS

He loves her, she loves him
They truly love each other
Yet, he is puzzled, doubtful
HE calls her an actress
In reality, she's just a girl
Discovering love.

She's unsure of herself
Like a colt
Trying out her new legs
Puzzled, not so much by him
As a whole world of new feelings,
Fears and emotions she has

He perceives he's hurt her
When she's really hurt herself
Her first kiss came from him
He was the first
To whom she spoke
The magical words "I love you"

She is so sincere
I wonder if he realizes
Just how sincere.

SELFISHNESS

ME,ME,ME, I,I,I,
Never you, she or they.

ME,ME,ME, I,I,I,
All along life's merry way

I'm the only ONE who matters
Why should I bother to think the other way?

ME,ME,ME, I,I,I,
Becomes more satisfying every day

ME,ME,ME, I,I,I,
Why bother about you, she or they?

Why should I think
About that insignificant three
They've never done a single thing
For ME,ME, ME
I'm great! I'm glorious! The world should look at ME!
World, I'm here, look at ME and see.

World, look at ME
Or have your eyes and hearing ceased?
I don't get any attention.
Not any in the least!

Where is everyone, the people I see every day?
Where is everyone, have they all gone astray?
Someone talk to ME, speak to ME I say.
Nobody's here, they've all gone away.

me, me, me, I, I, I NEVER YOU, SHE or THEY
me, me, me, I, I, I as my life
slowly
fades
away

CHANGE A SELFISH ONE?

To change a selfish person
It to move heaven and earth
Love if a selfish person
Can even love
Might deviate those egotistical thoughts
For awhile
But in the end
Even love in not enough to produce the change
And the self-centered person
Reverts to his former self.
After this
It is hopeless to try
Useless to go on
I know because I loved a selfish one
Loved and lost him
Lost him to himself.
