Bitter days ahead?

surly days noisy

family values sacrificed

karma’s lava flows

For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

The more we hold on to our hurts, anger and bitterness, the more we become slaves to unforgiveness. – Nancy Lee DeMoss

  2. Surround yourself with goodness and let the badness go. We’ve rid ourselves of toxic folks and thing are peaceful. Some folks thrive on turmoil.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Eugenia. ♥

  7. I remember the first time I heard “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me” by Elton John. It was an advance single from the “Caribou” album… It came on the radio, while I was driving with a couple of co-workers, to a job site. Within minutes, the driver had to pull over, so the other two, one of which was me, could get out of the truck and have a fight on the side of the road… That made for a really long day.

    I enjoyed your poem, Eugenia.

    • Oh, I can only imagine how scary that must have been! A really long day you weren’t planning on, as well. These days, people don’t fight on the side of the road, they shoot each other. 😬
