A Rant

Written for a friend 

When you stop being judgemental
About all who surround you,
When you stop trying to teach
A lesson to everyone
Who does not agree with you,
When you stop being stubborn
In your thoughts and behaviour,
When you’re ready to accept
That others too have a right
To different points of view,
I promise to support you,
In any way that I can.
But, until then forgive me.
At my age, it’s not easy
To put up with pettiness
And crazy childish tantrums.

Miel. My goodness how well you expressed those views. I agree totally. Some people find it far too hard to consider other people’s feelings these days. (I will refrain from writing a list) 😉
I was hoping that you would leave me a comment on my haikus 😉


You are so right, Miel. There are too many people who think they are superior and tend to lord over anyone they believe in need of their counsel.


I love a good rant! Well done. Agree wholeheartedly especially last three lines.

Great rant indeed. We all have a friend like this and without friendship we’d never bother with them. Nice write.
