Enough Already!

Enough, already! I can't stand it!
You shouldn't talk, it's not your place
You can feel that, just don't say it
Go and say it to their face!

I'm as guilty, I'll admit it
Sometimes I can't keep it in
But there's no excuse, no reason for it
I won't stand for it again

If you think that this is better
Talking bad behind their back
You're mistaken, sinful liar
You need to grasp the truth you lack

If you think it makes you cooler
To lie and smile to their face
It's neither right nor popular
And it will never be your place

If the reason that you hate them
Comes about every day
You need to fess up, need to tell 'em
Or it will never go away

Why do you even tell me this?
Why the constant agravation?
I don't want to know what it is
Don't want to fall to the temptation

If you think it gives you power
Makes you better cause you're right
Then you, my friend, are just a coward
Just cause you think it gives you the right

Enough, already, just be quiet
Go spread your hatred somewhere else
Just shut up, don't wanna hear it
You're just becoming them yourself

Just fess up, its not your place
Don't let those gossip lies come back
Go and say it to their face
And stop talking behind their back!

Yes, though this particular poem was spiked between someone and (shhh, don't tell) Crawfordkid.  Yeah, I kinda ranted, but it was getting a little borish.

Yeah it's good to get it off your chest but....

May I just point out that you are doing the same thing that you are saying not to do in your poem. Not to be rude or anything. :) Oh and speaking of crawfordkid, he posted a thread so that you guys can debate on. I will be watching.

I see now.  How creative.  ^.^  I'm sorry if I say anything offensive to you on it. [sheepish look]  I don't really know how to convey my emotions into debates very well sometimes, as you probably might have seen, so it could be quite...intense.

You haven't that anything that bad for me. But you really should be telling this to them.

Well in my defense, it would be even more rude to just go up to her and say I can't stand her at all. :-P

Well...still, it doesn't matter, you shouldn't talk behind her back.  I was just venting my wrath out in writing and I guess it shows.  [sheepish face] You make me feel guilty every time I read this, crawfordkid because I remember sending it to you and watching you read it from across the computer lab...

 

Are you lost, Asianflowers, I don't think we're talking about the same thing...

In my defense, I don't have anything I could say to her face that would make me like her once changed.  It's just that - I. Don't. Like. Her.  At all.  In any way, shape, or form.  Yes, I suppose it isn't exactly the kindest thing to say so behind her back, but it is still much nicer than going to her and saying she drives me insane just by being in the same room.  I know that's harsh, but I can't help it.

Fun side story, we have 6 out of 7 classes together ne... (more »)

Haha, sorry.  Had a moment there. ;-)
