I don’t like arguements or confrontations

But I find it hard to just allow people to use and abuse me,

I am good natured and a kind soul

But pushed to far I am too old,

To suffer that without saying something back

When I was younger, confidence to do this I lacked,

But. Now I don’t suffer fools gladly

I really do hate reacting badly,

So I can only act in the best way I can

Being true to myself because I am just a man,

Flawed and in no ways perfect

It’s not my way to cause any hurting,

But angry words I may have been spurting

Are a reaction to what I feel I am on the end of,

I wish instead I excised control and offered back love,

But I am still work in progress

And that one day I will be better than this.

  2. I relate to your poem a lot. I hate confrontations and arguments too but it really is a part of life and we need to work on how we handle itโ€”its essential. Thank you for sharing your poem, we’ll soon mature in handling these things. All the best for you!
