Sting-Less

Sting-Less

Intimidating
that’s what you used to be
violent
a bully

Proud
of the fear you inspired
in others
in me

Look in the mirror
old man
see
what you’ve become

Washed up
washed out
your sting
has been
removed

  1. What I like about this is that to me it doesn’t just say he’s powerless now. He’s washed up, yes, but you (or the person in this poem) have refused to let him have power over you anymore.
