A New Start For A New Year - Poem by Dee Corpolongo

I have been gone now for a while
letting words with a sarcastic touch
get to me somehow and hurt me
I am sensitive oh, way too much

For I am always trying
to make others feel their best
being mean and nasty
is something I truly detest

So I have decided to return
to a place I once enjoyed
another lesson I have learned
and now refuse to get annoyed

So Happy New Year to all the people
I've come to know along my way
I send {{{HUGS}}} and many best wishes
with many smiles for you today.

    Though sarcastic in words only expecting best things to the year has ended; but I hug and welcome with the wish of New Year to Bernette things next! (Report) Reply

    Welcome back Dee! Life is not always pleasant.... Sometimes others' actions may pain us and sometimes we too may cause hurt to others unknowingly..... it is all natural in life! The only thing is not be very sensitive about it, (though I too am sensitive) ! Let us learn to ignore certain things and always expect that better days would dawn! Wish you a great year ahead! Smiles! Enjoyed the poem! (Report) Reply

    Many {{{HUGS}}} and best wishes for you also Dee, and I am sorry that you have experienced meanness and nastiness - there is never any excuse for such behaviour, and those concerned should be ashamed of themselves. You are a very kind, thoughtful and loving person. I hope you are back to stay with us on PH. (Report) Reply
