A lover’s complaint
I basically lived for my idealism
throughout my life in earnest and fidelity
and somehow always was rebuked
and punished for my honest efforts,
as the more I worked and harder I produced,
the more severely I was punished,
being thrown out of society and school
for being serious about my vocation
and perhaps for being over-active in my diligence,
and now even locked out with small chance of a return
from facebook, for an unitended nipple.
Isn’t it ridiculous? Still I will go on loving,
sticking to my earnestness and good intentions
and will not fall out because of some stupidity,
as nothing is more meritorious for the knowledgeable ones
than the acknowledgement of ignorance condemning you to exile.

If I ever got this right, this is a complain regarding critique? I was going to offer some but……
No, you got it wrong. It’s not about critique, it’s about sabotage. Critique is only intellectual and can be discussed, but Sabotage like to your life is more something to just survive – if you can make it.
