       This started out as an extreme vent because my day's been kinda tough. But I thought it should end on a postive note because I try to be positive and see a good side to everyone. It's a bit of a different style than I usually do, but I was venting, so it sounded right at the time. Enjoy.

    You piss me off,
    Point and scoff,
    Then walk away.
    Oh, please stay,
    And taunt some more!
    Am I a bore?
    Sorry about that,
    You cruel little brat!
    I feel blue too,
    May I abuse you?
    If not, then why
    Do you wish I cry?
    Into you, let me tear.
    It's only fair.
    I had my turn,
    Now you can burn.

    On second thought
    I really ought
    To act mature.
    So I ensure
    That I will end
    The hate you send
    Without physical means
    Or eye laser beams.
    I'll smile and extend
    My best attempt to mend
    The part that's broken,
    That's caused what you've spoken.
    For happiness they send
    To the one in the end
    Who keeps respect sacred
    And seeks to end hatred.

      oh:) I liked the first stanza. I love the rhym there also. Kinda sacrastic in the begining and snappy. I really did enjoy it. Then, in the last stanza, you offered to mend things, end their hatred...a real view of maturity on your part. Well thought out piece here, I love it:)

      I thought this was pretty good. It was to the point, and definately showed the emotions going on inside you. The fact that the poem did end with you trying to turn the other cheek was a good touch. Lord knows it can be quite difficult to bite your cheek at times, and to show that in the poem is a really good idea.

      a sounding board. I truly like this, and yet I think the "better person" is the one who can get their point across, and make the other realize that violence is such an immature way of dealing with anger...when that happens it usually develops close friendships or maybe even a black eye,lol..nice job...Bob:)

      People are evil... point proven. Har har... but no... seriously... I really liked this poem. I really liked the way it rhymed... and even though I'm not sposed to say this... love the flow. It's nice to see someone who really does try to see the good in people. It's there... it's just harder to find in some people than in others.

      wow. i liked the flow a lot- its short scheme makes it rather rant like, and i am a big fan of the fusion of both. excellently written.

      Yeah...the end was not ready to come forth maybe...but you did it...always see that good don't you?...yep
    You're like the sun that peeks through the clouds when the rain will not let up...
    Keep shinning and all will fall back into place.

    Good venting job and thanks for sharing and being honest about it...
