Not My Problem.

Each of us is unique,

We live our lives differently,

Differently from others.

That difference must be respected,

As respect can make life flow,

Make life flow smoothly,

Smoothly with joy.

But you always meet them,

Those who don’t like what they see,

What they see in others,

And show no respect,

Want to change people,

Into a way that suits them.

Well with me it will not work,

This is me,

If you don’t like what you see,

It is not my problem,

It is yours!

      I agree with Orchi...
      A fine write indeed!
      I can proudly say that I share your philosophy... each his/her own!

      My love to Joyce and to you...

        Thank you Laura, I have always lived by this philosophy ever since I was given a second chance at life in 2007.

        a statement of true fact that all should apply to their daily lives.

        I like what I see so no problem here.


        • Goldfinch60


          Thank you, yes it should apply to all as long as respect is there for all.

          Well said sir! I'm pretty much of the same opinion.
          Some might call us arrogant for our stance but that is a long way off the mark.

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you d a.

            Arrogance is a long, long way off, respect for others must be at the fore.
