Borderline

I walk the path of black and white
Reared to engage in fight-or-flight
Abandoned at an early age
Only taught the language of rage

In my passage throughout time
There are so many I’ve left behind
Eventually they would all go
Thus I would leave before they know

“Do unto others as they have done to you!”
The twisted logic in which I grew
All too late I eventually learned
How I’ve destroyed all that I’ve earned

Now here I am in my fifth decade
With gratitude for all that has decayed
Punishment for the sins of the past
Won’t encourage future relationships to last

The old urges still exist
Yet I have the Will to resist
My purpose now is unity
For all of humanity.

  1. Interesting perspective. My ex was diagnosed with this – I always suspected he had a rougher childhood than he admitted to. Was never very sure if his problems though were basic chemistry or childhood experience.

    • People with borderline are some of the most difficult people to deal with. I say this being one. Personality disorders, I have learned, are a combination of genetics (“basic chemistry”) and upbringing (“childhood experience”). The key deciding factor with borderline is abandonment — either real or imagined.
