When Push Leads To Shove

What's Next

There has to be a better way

The trouble has just started and it is to late to turn back

Instead of doing something we later regret

With our mind not clear and the result we will later fear

You need time to cool off

Back off

Take a walk

Be smart and later you might have a better choice

Maybe not

But give yourself the chance to decide

Not being pressured into a problem you can not fix

There is a good chance that some day you may laugh at this silly day

This is really great. I love your state of mind. I think it would be quite something to hear the motivation behind this poem. Very strong subject and nicely done.

mary615 In the heat of the moment I am like a bull and all I see is red.I love the color red but for different reasons I will have to explain in my next hub.Dim Flaxenwick I have to swollow these words again and again.Somehow they cause integestion and I wish they would go down smooth as silk.krsharp05 I appreciate your wonderful compliment.The truth is my wife gets mad and hotter than a fire pan on the top of the stove.Then when we try to talk only an arguement comes out.So I have to let time pass or we will accomplish nothing and then the whole cycle repeats itself all over again.It could be a day,week, or a month.But it rears its ugly head.Then I have to look at my poor job I do defussing the situation.Boom the bomb explodes time after time in my face.So if I vent on paper I can have hundreds of lives.Until I finally get it right.I want to thank so many for reading my half stories and half poems.I call them Stoems!!Good morning to some and good night to others.Have a great day.

yeah, somehow, someday, it may sound absurd, but the moment usually kicks us hard in the gut...

raciniwa I like to think of it as brain freeze.When you eat a freeze pop or ice cream too fast and your head kills you for seconds.All you want is that instant to be over.Thanx for reading and hopefully you will think it through when you come to an angry moment.
