What are you, silly school girl?
The mirror is not wide enough
To see all of your pride.
Your ego splashes over.
What a funny aura you have!
Unaware of your silliness.
When will you wake up from your deep sleep, vanity?
Silly little school girl,
Hanging on childhood dreams.
Eating an animal,
That breathes the same air as you,
And telling yourself it isn’t you.
But oh, Vanity -
You ARE the animal.
We all do that.
The ignorance, the foolishness, the hubris.
A kind of sickness,
Kept only to the worst of kinds.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
