I sit here, thinking.
Why do people act the way they do ?
Seriously, why ?
There is someone in my life who causes trouble all the time.
Each time they do it so quietly and only to me.
The kind where it's just normal for them to talk that way.
Each time, through the years I've known this person,
I am shocked and think about what just happened.
Always, it would be me looking bad,
if I reacted to what they said or did.
After many years of this, I finally stood up for myself.
This person just happens to be in my extended family.
Each time I would mention that I wanted to tell this person to stop, I was told that I would be
causing trouble if I said something.
Years have gone by.
Only this time, I said something.
The storm is brewing.
I have caused trouble.
I drink my coffee and think
how proud my own Mother would be of me.
So there you nasty person.
Leave me alone.
Stop sending me notes
after what you said to me last time we saw each other.
I do not want that kind of person in my life.
I want nice.
I want quiet.
I want peace.
I do not have to put up with this anymore.
Just saying ...
