We all have them in our lives, those people who judge us and are sure they know what is best for our lives. Sherry Garland calls them “Bossy Do Gooders” and that is the title of her new poem. Enjoy!
BOSSY DO GOODERS
By: Sherry C. Garland
Why is it people who have never had kids, are so willing to give you advice?
They seem to know such pat answers, offering solutions without thinking twice.
Why is it when you’ve lost true love, people say there are “more fish in the sea?”
He’s such a cad, for you he was bad,
They don’t think how much our love meant to me.
Why is it when old memories bring you down people often chant, “forget the past”?
They say it’s all behind you but the loss, pain, and regret can last.
We will raise our children OUR way. And try to understand why love went wrong,
We will try and forgive our past mistakes when our day seems oppressively long.
Only you can make your life choices. You are trying with all your Might.
Offer up what is hard to handle alone, And accept some people always think they are right.
