Remember This Quick And Fast


Remember...
I am not the one,
To have encouraged you to make...
Those choices made you have done.

Remember...
I am not the one,
To have talked behind your back.
And then to laugh.
Although to me you have done just that.

And remember...
Even in my sacrificing without a dime to share,
I was there giving you my support.
Regardless if none to me you had given.
At no time did I ask from you anything.
I gave to you from me something genuine.
And I hope you remember that for the rest of your life.

And let me leave you with this...
Since your priorities seem to have changed a bit.
To disrespect others...
Who too make their own choices.
You will confront others who find it okay,
To display 'things' they have.
Or in your case...
Things they once had.
To one day remember that laughing at others,
As being less impressive to socialize in 'inner' circles...
Are often the ones sooner or later discovered,
To have more going on to impress...
IF,
They wanted to address their effective accomplishments.

Remember...
I am not the one,
To have encouraged you to make...
Those choices made you have done.
Remember this quick and fast.

Remember...
I am not the one,
To have talked behind your back.
And then to laugh.
Although to me you have done just that.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
