Like a kettle boiling,
You finally erupted from sheer pressure,
Decided to put your woes in writing.
However, there’ll be people
Who won’t agree with you,
Assume the worst
And start prying.
It’s not as if you love fighting,
They never really thought
How long you’ve been brewing
To turn bitter and start fighting
Instead of merely crying
And starting a storm within.
In the end, we can’t change
A person’s thinking.
But I realized that some things are better off not written,
For repercussions will start rippling.
Writing off the offender’s name
Out of the book of your life is worth trying.
