I Will Leave You Alone - July 2, 2010

I Will Leave You Alone

Your words are heard throughout my changing mind
Saturating every part of my senses
Profusely renouncing all of my kind affections
Can you not see me building my shield of defenses

Your exasperation with life itself crushes my resolve
To see this world with you in a better light
As you seem to distrust each one who crosses your path
When I know each dog I see does not bite

All your subtle insinuations, unbendable points of view
Places a shadow on the light here in my heart
Yet, I will not permit you to ever steal my joy
Even if from your presence, I must forever part

I have always been in awe of your judgment and your wisdom
Deeply respected your opinion as your own
However, I will not be forced to think and act as you do
So for now, I will leave you alone

I think I am running out words to describe Neva's poems.They touch my heart and soul so very deeply that at times I am moved to tears.
This poem is so very true and meaningful and is such good advice for all of us.

Negative people can certainly make you feel down and depressed. Yes, it is best to stay away from them for awhile else you get the same depressing attitude and thoughts.
