Thin Line - Poem by Jeffrey SpahrSummers

i dont understand this business
of anger i just
dont get it
i dont understand
the heat of this language
hateful words bang
bang gotta blame
somebody
anybody
anyone
anyone but
ourselves anyone but
us us
mean mister misters
gone and
done it again
i dont understand
the purpose of
this
this is my dilemma
and i find no comfort here

    I identify with this. You would not believe what i was accused of, but then again, maybe you would. Only tried to offer a shoulder and I got accused of something i did not do...like it was all my fault...and i don't even know this person that i was accused of being involved with! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    The world can be mean...and preconceived judgements are bad, and so is paranoia. I for one have been guilty of preconceived notions but my mistakes are my own, no one else's. keep writing, you write very deep prose and everyone on this site loves your work, including me.
    Happy New Year to you and your family!
    Best
