The Cruelty Of Mean - Poem by Melvina Germain

I'm sitting here watching a TV program and I'm shaking my head wondering why humans are so mean to each other, why do so many reach out to hurt so much. Why is it necessary to lie, deceive, backstab people you are involved with and some you say you love.
How can love be so cruel, I'll never understand it. People in families hurt each other terribly and often it's over that dang money. I know a gent, a very nice man actually and one day we were at an event and a lovely looking lady walked by and smiled at me, didn't give him a look. He said that's my sister and I was shocked, they did not speak and why. Their parents passed away and the parents left her totally in charge. She didn't share anything with anyone else in the family, how absurb is that.
Well I've said many times, parents have a responsibility to be equal with their children. You really can't depend on children to be fair, some will and some won't. If anger for any reason comes into play, there goes the fairness, Do the right thing parents. Their's nothing worse that sibling upset due to funds.
Then you have the scammers, the catfish, the identity theft and the list goes on, why hurt people like this. Most of us are struggling from day to day, making ends meet or at least trying to. Some give up and leave this world due to suicide, they can't take it anymore. The cruelty is phenomenal and the young men and women who get involved too early without knowing the person and finding out a whole lot of ugliness soon after. Learn what motivates people for gosh sake before jumping into a sick basket of relentless problems. Pay attention to the signs and don't think you can change anyone, you can't. Believe in words and actions, if he or she wasn't good to their last partner perhaps the same will happen to you, that's not rocket science. Stealing from a sister or brother is another thing, what looks good to you, well now that bag of potatoes might have a whole lot of rotten inside that you can't see. Messed up by previous relationships that might be taken out on you, pay attention.
Bottom line is, stay away from mean people and I'm not talking to one gender more than the other here. We blame men for a whole lot, let me clue you in, women can be just as nasty and sometimes worse and the courts are usually on their side but that's changing and that's a good thing. It's much easier and certainly a whole lot more peaceful without having to deal with mean people, watch yourselves and surround yourself with people who are genuine nice people, caring, loving and compassionate. Life will move much smoother...Take what you can use and leave the rest...Melvina.....
