Why Not?
Author: Sharita


Irritate, torment, daily harassment
Can effect one's mentality when repeated everyday.
Eliminating the problem could be the solution.
Send messages that it's time to end the childish play.
Why not? It will be the final say.
It gets the point across and ends all confusion.
Then why can't it be the final conclusion?
After all it's the behavior that some adults display.
Sorry to say but it seems okay.

I didn't mean it like that. It's written from the perspective of my childhood. I was in that same situation and how desperate I was to make it stop. I couldn't take it and even now it effects me today.

"Eliminating the problem" meaning hurting them so it would end is how I though.

"Afterall, it's the behavior that most adults display" it refers to the way I seen some adults handle their problems by hurting other people.

The questions are asking why is it wrong not to handle your problems that way.

"Send messages that it's time to end the childish play" meaning that what they are doing maybe be a good laugh for them but it hurts people's feelings.

"Sadly, to say it seems okay" meaning that even now I think it's okay to handle your problems like that.

I guess I should have wrote it better. Thanks for the comments!!!

No Explanations..

I feel this poem works both ways. Poetry can always mean different things to different people and sometimes different things to the same person at a differnt time. Good work Sharita
