CONTROVERSY

We interact and find a track that leads to sheer digression,
grounds for misunderstandings that lead to sad aggression.
why do we do these things, when we know not all is clear,
we explode with our controversies, and hide behind our fear.

When all along it isn't really what at first was meant,
a sudden thrown out snide remark can make us soon relent,
we jump with our reactions far too fast,
and break up our good friendships made to last.

Take time to then consider what to do,
it's not too late to make amends,
with empathy between the two,
negotiate the creeks and bends, remaining friends.

Thank you both, it was felt, we all experience
this sometimes, don't we, none of us is perfect.

Love Ann.

A lovely piece of wisdom here and one I shall remember, You take care and know we think of you,
Yours Ian.T and Friends

.
There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Prompted by a fracas of course,
we are often wise-guys,when it isn't us who are involved!!

Thank you Ian. Love Ann.
