Earning A Peace Of Mind Has Its Benefits - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What makes people believe,
Those they had ignored in the past...
Have awakened with a wishful desire,
To be around those that had opposed them?
Or socialize with them,
To mingle and chit chat while smiling falsely.

I have never understood this!
Not with a longing to understand.
If someone ignores me,
That's one less face I have to look at.
And I immediately feel blessed for that.
Earning a peace of mind has its benefits.
