Making Enemies And Not Friends - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A negativity expressed,
To accept it spoken or said to address...
About anyone to do intentionally,
Only invites more of it to come.
And with it done,
Effectively! Since very few...
Will reminisce a pest to do it to forget.

Provoking other folks to think it a joke,
Initiates adverse situations created...
To have been thoughtlessly made,
With beliefs such activites do not leave...
Those on the losing end of making enemies.
And not friends to think understanding,
Or a forgiveness will from them be given.

Deep and kept to feel,
Are real emotions felt to keep.
And once one loses respect for others,
What benefits from this...
Does one expect to receive to reap?
Joy? Happiness? Or a loss of sleep?
It doesn't pay to play childish games.
Played to stay unchanged that way.
