A Provocateur #POETRY #Bullying & Santana "Oye Como Va" #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Bullying consists of the least competent most aggressive employee projecting their incompetence on to the least aggressive most competent employee and winning.” – Tim Fields

A Provocateur
Auspiciously veering at me
A chi cruel, unhappy or viscerally mean
It’s inconceivable
The depths this wound would spin
Darned between unconscious layers in thoughts we tend

Two years in making, as a jackal awaits his prey
You, with the power, presumed
And lied
Shredding confidence; as a soul slowly began to decay

A goad,
Poking, prodding, a noteworthy handful for sure
One face reflecting amusement; the other a provocateur
Not kind; a thief of ideas as you laughed and commiserate
Ambitious, a prodigy of facts; yet, I was the one to intimidate?

I saw your spirit
In webs of artificial justification!
That’s right; filled with masterful manipulation
“Pathetic”, your words, remember? “Slow”…
Or you should have “known”
As you walked arrogantly by
With hatred, cutting your eyes to the side

Today I ask you. Do your insides burn?
By this vast corruption, your churn?
Are you still driven?
Like a rabid dogs’ raging madness for water given?
That’s alright, keep it! Who cares why!
I never met you before but honestly I did try

Thank you; I say it with a shallow sigh
Because the memory of me will haunt until you die
Oh yes, admittedly I live with a broken soul
But this does not mean my mind is old
So, middle finger “up”,
That’s right! I said fuck!
And in defiance, watch my fine ass as I walk away
Screaming hallelujah to having a much better day!

Quick Update: I have a great supervisor now and she makes sure I am happy, respected, challenged and important to the team. Believe in yourself, it works and finally never let a bully win!
Peace and Love Always, Diana
