A Heart's Echoes

Maybe it’s because you were raised that way, raised to show the world that everything is okay, because any crack in the facade would make others think you’re weak. Or maybe it’s because you are too scared to acknowledge what you feel because you can’t deal with the repercussions. Or maybe it’s because you realize that nobody can really help you with what you’re going through so why give others ammunition to use against you now (by making fun) or in the future (by blackmailing you)?

And so you keep on stuffing your heart until it’s full. And hope that one day everything you’re feeling will disappear and you’ll get  the chance to start afresh. But do…

Who am I?

You may know me.

I’m your constant companion.

I’m you greatest helper.

I’m your heaviest burden.


I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.

I am at your command.

Half the tasks you do can be turned over to me.

I’m able to do them quickly, and

I’m able to do them the same every time.


I’m easily managed.. all you have

to do is to be firm, with me.

Show me exactly how you want it done.

After a few lessons, I will do it automatically.


I’ am the servant of all great men and women.

And of course the servant of all the failures as well.

I’ve made all the great individuals

who have ever been great.

And I’ve made all the losers too.


I work with all the precision of a computer,

and the intelligence of a human being.

You may run me for profit or you may run me to ruin.

It makes no difference to me.

Make me a strong part of your life.

Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Be firm with me and I’ll put the world at your feet.


Who am I?
