Maybe This Helps

Just Go Away

When we have met someone who is not nice

They rub our skin like a red rasberry rash

I would like to tell them they are a real pain in the *ss

But I hold my tongue and bite it gently

Wondering what trouble they will cause next

Little did I know how loud and obnoxious they can be

If I was a cat all my fur would be standing straight up

They don't have a good bone in their body

Spiteful ,arrogant and down right mean

Causing trouble whereever they go

Laughing as if it was funny woudn't you know

I have seen enough and I have watched this same scenerio play out before

They pretend to be a friend and offer to help

Then as soon as they get the chance

They sink their teeth in and then bite

I hope you have had your rabbies shot

I know they won't win in the end

But for now it seems they get the upper hand

People fall for their stories and their pitty excuses

I have learned from experience start walking and get as far away as you can

If in a conversation say those sweet words

Just go away

Don't you have a rock to crawl under or house to haunt

I don't by your story and I shake my head

The world is filled with good people and I will search and find

When I see you coming I quickly put my head down and walk faster than my legs can move

To avoid any trouble and keep my insanity

I make sure you are the only one who has lost their mind

I think we all have people like that can make trouble.... and it's really painful indeed! When I read your poem... I could just see them all coming at once.

I used to have a "friend" like the people you talk about in our poem. I had to let them go as I don't do toxic relationships.

You have to let them go. It's hard and sometimes, very, very hard and sad. I had to let go of my mother unfortunately; I was never good enough for her. It took me a long time but for health reason, I couldn't continue. I always dreamed that one day I could have a good relationship but it was not meant to be.

But I am blessed with a wonderful husband and great kids. I have to focus on the present and the future.... not the past.

I try also to always be positive; may be it is a survival mechanism in my case. I think it's also the best way to succeed in life.

I believe strongly on being positive, not jaleous and thankful :-)

There's always someone out to start trouble - usually they turn up when you least expect it - sailing along with no problems and than - wham. Yes, I agree - walk on by and walk fast.

Eiddwen Most of my thoughts fall on deaf ears.I have only recently stopped my own river of tears.To share with you is my pleasure.To see you happier staying away from people that do more harm than good makes me smile.Thanx for taking the time reading my mind.Have a great day.

Good afternoon, dream on.

Minacious. " the world is filled with good people" - sounds desirable. With good intentions and a good heart , good responds to good. To make acquaintanceship worth to keep distance at initial fellowshiping, not everybody is worth of my trust. Standing on integrity principles, troublemakers might reconsider intention of evil having controling them; not all of them are bold, they're luring for company.

A simple " excuse me", makes you free without a loss.

Not forgetting to vote, useful and interesting .

Michael-Milec I use to try a very kind approach.Letting them know I don't think what they said was very nice.They some how felt they had the power to push their views.Finding other people who don't stand their ground and just follow them.I would be upset to think people that I know would go so far.I felt saying boldly go away they would get directly to the point and not trying to push their power on me.I love your words and I will let you know how I do.Thanx so much.

One thought came to mind - false friends are not true friends.

Gypsy Rose Lee You are so right.Friends stand by you day or night.Doing everything in my power to help others.At the same time finding time for myself to live out my dreams.Enjoy the day.Thanx so much for reading.

There are so many awful people in the world. You just have to deal with them sometimes and seek out the ones who are good. Great poem. :)

People are different and sometimes pretend to like the other those kind of people I don't have on my mind, I choose my friends but you can't choose family

DDE I have found if you don't encourage those types of people they get bored and find someone else to bother.Family is harder because they can be unavoidable.I thank God for teaching me new lessons every day.I search out the people that make my life good to great.Those people deserve all my time and energy.Thanx for sharing and caring.

Too bad we all know people like this. Definitely so much easier to turn tail and go the other way whenever possible.

You are absolutely right! I tend to believe what people tell me-some may say I am naïve. I just want to believe in the good, but so many times I have been burned. I still want to believe and HP has been awesome in that I have been introduced to so many good-hearted souls like yourself.

Thumbs UP!

Best Always,

Kim

ocfireflies I never stop believing in people.Don't let a few rotten eggs spoil the dozen.The more we meet people that are good the more we can reassure ourselves we were always right.The news only highlights the bad.Day after day we are slowly brainwashed.So be happy and be proud.Now is the best time to let your greatness shine.You have a fan.Thanx so much for reading and sharing.
