“I CARE.” a poem November 11, 2019 (Veteran’s Day) MONDAY.

I think I’M CURED of saying THAT;

Saying: “I don’t give a [blank]” because I’ve been at,

THE RECEIVING END on one too many occasions,

Hearing SAID PHRASE from even intimate relations.

Piece be with you all πŸ•ŠπŸ•Š

I USED TO proudly DECLARE:

“I don’t give a [blank],”

Thinking that it was cool or that I was “being frank,”

But, I gotta tell you: “IF YOU HEAR ‘IT’ OFTEN,

YOU JUST WANNA CRAWL BACK INTO YOUR COFFIN,

Saying: ‘I CARE ABOUT HAVING TO HEAR SAID PHRASE,

BECAUSE I DON’T WANT OTHERS TO HAVE TO LISTEN TO ME RAISE,

IT’S SAD REFRAIN because I LOVE MY FAMILY; I DO,

AND I CARE WHAT I MIGHT PUT THEM THROUGH,”

AND I THINK LIFE IS TOUGH ENOUGH,

Piece and Harmony
πŸ’•

WITHOUT HAVING to LISTEN to CLOSE RELATIONS, WHO, “OFF THE CUFF,”

SAY “MEAN THINGS,” EVEN IF THEY’RE TRUE.

So, I do CARE,

What I “bounce off your ears,”

I REALLY DO.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
