For Those Who Walk Away In Silence - Poem by Chris Boyles
What the hell is it with some people these days
so self righteous and stuck in their selfish ways.
One rule to suit their everyday needs is all I see
no forgiveness or understanding just being petty.
I am told 'Thats Life' get on with it stop moaning
but I put a foot wrong and they all start groaning.
Turning their backs their faults to ignorant to see
but its ok I dont mind im just human and just me.
I really dont hurt and I never really feel any pain
why not just do it over and over and over again.
I learnt from a friend Tami to let things pass by
she showed me I should always smile not cry.
As much as I try to live by that rule easy its not
when people walk away and things go to pot.
Im not a rubber ball that just bounces forever
im not a saint nor perfect that I will be never.
Just how much is one person expected to take
why do I end up with folks who are mostly fake.
Why do people have to lie and steal all they can
why are some petty out of their lives you they ban.
If I walked away when they needed me there
would it bother them and would they even care.
If I walked away without a word to them said
I know I would never again even enter their head.
But hey this is me for my sins that I cannot change
I am human with feelings not a dog full of mange.
I've had all I can handle with crap and ignorance
I give up trying any more that is my preferance.
So to all those ive given my time and cared for
remember you walked I didnt close that door.
When you're bored and no-one wants to hear
you're moans and winges you're loss I do fear.
For you threw away a friend who once cared
she gave her mind and heart because she dared.
To those who gave trust and know the real me
I thank you for being there and not being petty.
If you walk away in silence it is you're choice
to withhold friendship or to share you're voice.
So if by chance you should ever sit and recall
give me a thought even tho I meant to you s*d all.
