We were friends…brothers and sisters, you might say

Always getting along and sharing everything we had between us

All the dreams and aspirations we spoke about, growing up

The love and respect

All is gone now

All because of that different voice you use to rise at me, when speaking to me

I agree we disagreed

But couldn’t find an amicable way of us agreeing to disagree

…without having to intimidate me

I see you’re after my life now

Sending me all these death threats

And the booby-traps you keep on setting for me, to fall right into

As it stands now, we are past the stage of reconciliation

And making amends for the damage done

Probably because of the scars, seen and unseen that you’ve left on my body

It’s no wonder that I look around me and all I see, is lifelessness

From all these displays of aggression and intimidation…

Then, I WONDER….WHAT HAPPENED TO persuading me AND NOT threatening me?

  1. This is a pretty intense post. The way we communicate is so important and a path to better understanding each other. Too bad that with all the social media and tools of communication we have lost the ability to truly communicate. There is so much anger around us. Finding peace within our hearts is even more important now.

  2. Oh My,I’m very much taken up by this piece of writing because it says so much about how much anger has eaten up society (ies).how about if we make amends by sharing what we have with others,forgiving without thinking twice and so on…thanks @Edgar..


  3. Oh my,I’m very much taken up by this piece of information.How about if we make amends through sharing what we have with others,forgiving easily without thinking twice about doing it or not.I think this would change so many people’s attitudes and destroy the anger that fills their souls. .thanks Edgar.
