The crown you wear on the outside
may look powerful
but it doesn’t fill the emptiness inside
like connection with another can.
Do not give so much of yourself
to make others whole
that you are left in pieces.
Don’t lose yourself
to complete other’s
Rational Akrofi Akuffo
People give so much of themselves
to help others whilst
they lose themselves
in the process.
With a small gesture of giving,
Make someone feel like a king.
Siony Benemerito McCor
Generosity comes from the heart.
An important piece to have
Other than a crown on the head.
To make oneself complete.
A man in power will never be obliged
by the many sacrifices
an ordinary man does
just to make him whole.
Giver might be small
but keeps his head tall.
Taker might be royal
but stretches out his hand.
Giving never made anyone small,
Rather being helpful
makes you stand tall!
Stop giving away pieces of yourself…
or you will have nothing left.
Don’t give up the best pieces of yourself
trying to make someone else whole.
How can you complete another like Royalty?
With pieces of yourself given away in Slavery?
The most disturbing logic…
Between a Narcissist and an Empath!
Adrainenne Monique Gordon
Why do we keep giving pieces of ourselves
to others while we remain incomplete.
It’s out of love
Innocent souls sacrifice their lives
to quench the thirst of those in power.
One is in peace “when complete”;
other finds peace
in making “one complete”
is my kingdom.
Taking pieces out of yourself
to complete others,
leaves you the one
with the missing pieces.
Sometimes you can find
your missing piece in others
Take a piece of me
to complete a piece of you
If you let em,
they will take your last
to complete themselves
while leaving you in pieces
