Words To Live By

Updated on October 25, 2010

Words That You Don't Understand

You talk only to hear your words echo

There is no room for my thoughts

This is the way it is and always will be

You know it and you don't care

I don't look for change because you are to stubburn and worn

I am telling you for a change

Something you don't know

You like to think you are reminding me from time to time who is boss

You think you have the authority and the power

You have only a loud voice that I listen to and think

You are only years away from another

Who thinks like you

Acts foolish as you

I have heard you more than once say

I am telling you what to do!

You have made yourself clear

You are no different than a bully

That thrives on fear

When I don't understand and I tell you often

You don't care and think it is all crap

You think you know

I wait and wait

Like before you are wrong dead wrong

My hands our tied

You got your way

I will do you this favor

Don't abuse my passive behavor

Because I know more than you think

Your way is not my way

I will keep writing and you will not care

I see what you have given up on years ago

A single thought

That leads to a dream

I give no names and all my people have blank faces

For they are not just a shadow in an empty shell

They are living ghosts

That you will always know

      Dear Dream ON. Others have influence and sometimes we're linked inexorably to them, but they can't direct our BEING unless we allow it. Expressing it helps us keep it in view and growing. Let it grow. No one can stop it without your allowing it. Bullies are scared for themselves. Fighting them lowers one to their level - and is a kind of victory for them. Withhold it and keep GROWING your own beautiful BEING.

      This poem is very heartfelt and healthy.
