Not Sure
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Do we warn someone when what we feel may be wrong.
Getting involved in something,where we don't belong.

What we see as a mistake and not right for us.
Others see as a blessing.

If some one is happy, then who are we to burst
their happiness, because of our gut feeling.

How can something that makes us feel good, be so

I never believed what I was being told.
Had to find out on my own ,then I believed.

I learned we only believe what we want.
People can warn til they are blue in the face.

The best learning experience is a bad experience.

It's a hard decision

do we tell what we know, or keep it to ourselves? Your poems are so succinct and thought provoking. Thanks for sharing.

yea MC

Thats my problem . I have a gut feeling about something and I don't know if I should state my feelings which could be wrong or do like that song says "SILENCE IS GOLDEN" and mind my own business ,worry about protecting myself and let others protect themselves. thank-you for yoyr uplifting comment

Your wings will comfort,, the one that suffers

Doll, i agree w/my friend MC, difficult indeed, no matter how sources are revealed , pain will be the price to pay. many hearts will suffer because of one'a selfishness . your heart as it is true,i know you will comfort. i for one, ya want to know what would paralyze my heart the most ? "Love" if someone knew something, and didn't say a word, would i want to suffer the duration of wastin' my whole waitin' on a dissapointment? or do i want to know to allow my heart to heal and move on with a healthy soul? thanks for sharin' sweetie...

you are human too like your comments

Even if we are told as human beings ,we don't listen and you would like to know even if that person has no proof just a feeling. Why borrow trouble from just a feeling. thanks for commenting.
