Could This Be You ?

Updated on October 23, 2010

I wonder

If this is you

Try on the shoe

You walk quietly away and you talk to hurt someones feelings

You cause pain easily without effort

You only care about our own life and the way you want to live it

Try on the shoe

You get your way time and time again

Because other people give in

I know you and you know me

We will never be friends

I will leave you alone and you will go on your merry way

We both know the truth and the truth never lies

I will never understand you

I won't even try

For you and I lead different paths

Even though there will be days that we cross

I am not always right and I do my best to help not hurt

I don't cause harm the way you do

I won't lie still and sit and watch

I will not try to help you

Because you made it clear you need no help

I am on with my life

If you are missing a shoe

I have seen it somewhere

Maybe someday you will find it

When a stranger will ask you

Try on this shoe

      You spear right through to the core of the matter, as always. And you notice the infirmity of those with the bad attitudes - - missing part of their protective clothing. Maybe that's what makes them so belligerent and nasty! Good reason to avoid their habits. Certainly the last thing one would want to do would be to take on any of their habits or attitudes!! :-)

      Sadly there are only people who think exclusively about themselves. It is so important to care for others even though it can be very difficult at times. Give a smile to someone who will least expect it and really make their day. Great hub Dream On and of course as always food for thought. Voted up.

      Nighthag Life is very interesting and there are people that we encounter that have very different attitudes.They live their life sadly to the end without caring for others and the consequences they leave behind.Have a good day.
