Ignore Them - Poem by Francis Duggan

What matters if you are an honest person behind your back what others of you say
As long as their opinions are not libelious by ignoring your feedback is a better way
Than feeling mentally heated about it just shut such negative people from your life
Do not accost them in a fit of anger as their type only seem to thrive on strife,
Ignore them that is surely your best option some people with their words can be so cruel
Your friends would never put you down with their words your anger they are only trying to fuel
Just ignore them and they will respect you better their type seem to thrive where heated words do fly
Ignore them and they will respect you better when satisfaction of them you deny
These people were not your friends in the first place your friends to you could never be so unkind
But true friends they are always rare and precious and enemies are never hard to find
You thought they were your friends by thought you've been fooled from life we learn lessons every day
For this experience you will be the wiser for every lesson there's some price to pay,
Ignore them that is your best course of action since in your life such people you do not need
To accost them would give them satisfaction for heated words of you to more put downs would lead.
