Remind me to butt-out!

Poetry By: attanasio

Ever take crap becuase you tried to help someone. Makes you regret being nice when it backfires.

Have you ever been in a really pissy mood

You got irked and now just want to brood

We let stuff bother us that other people say

Why do we let their ugly words ruin our day


Why do we let people rain on our parade

When their foul thoughts are conveyed

Why listen, when we don't want to hear

Why don't we just run away and disappear


Why can't we stay hidden in our little shell

And tell the negative people, to go to hell

I think it is a curse when a guy is too nice

Because he cares, the burden is the price


When you reach out your hand to help

They take a bite, you pull back and yelp

You'd think by now I should have known

That I am better off in this world, alone
