DEFENCE MECHANISM

Man is a clever creature
Devise new means of defence
Develop habits and change nature
To protect self, he creates fence
Some of the tricks, let’s mention
Postponing the consequences cleverly
Acting out and making mockery
Trivializing the matters
With peers he chatters
Diverting attention
Through creative expression
Making the matter sublime
Making painting, writing rhyme
Man is same throughout all seasons
Creates and manifests reasons
Compares with example
To make life simple
With boss he murmurs
With peers he humours
Adopting a method of denial 
Avoiding reality, giving fantasy a trial
Making the situation look normal
Distorting the facts and making more informal
Dissociation from the issues and isolation
Creating a world of his own imagination
Making excuses and giving rationalization
Using suppression to dispel emotion
Comforting self with positive anticipation
Creating new identification for expression
Blaming others for negative projection
There are many to use and to explore
Sailing oneself from the sea of anxiety
To the shore of comfort and gaiety
