I know I 've said this before.
Just want to stress it once more.

We cause our own problems sometimes in life.
Swearing and yelling gets you alot of strife.

When someone is nice and calm people want to help.
When you are angry and cursing people would like to
give you a belt

So if you want a nice calm life.

Heated words, fed by heated feelings, this is what I heard.


Felt you had a "recent" experience of which the heat still burns, I feel the heat in your words. I do stand beside you, I know, {that is too close, okay, I'll move a little this way, Like that move? Elvis taught me that one.}

Sorry, my Point: Barb you are hitting the earth's rude residents like a laser. It does not belong to any of us, but there are those, who think they have a deed and all of it is private real estate. So, those who show no respect to other's soul's will indeed, in time, own some private real estate, about six feet, I think, is the norm. We all walk upon this sacred ground. Show respect, else you kill your soul, then, you will get your private ground. There you will lie, but nobody will know, how sad. to end that way. Upon the hole, where we buried you is this head stone, "Sorry that you lie with your fate, if only, you had shown respect, now, you will never, R.I.P."

Barb, I got your point, but my comment may have missed.

Good work, your thoughts became your "heated" words.
