Life Missed

Don’t come to me to end your strife
It’s not my job to fix your life

You’re strong enough, stand on your own
Responsibility lies in you alone

Don’t think I don’t care because I do
That’s why I’m saying it’s up to you

If you wish to vent or talk it out
I always be there, without a doubt

It’s your burdens that I’m not willing to take
Because then our friendship would be at stake

And, I’d have to claim your victories if 
Your problems, each, I fixed
Then, how could you be happy 
If so much of life, you missed?

    You tell 'em, Kimberly!! For some reason, people like to drop their problems at someone else's door and stand idly by waiting for resolution. This is SO well written. Perfect rhyme, perfect structure, powerful message. Awesome! Glad I caught this one; it made my night! Love, Carolyn

    very powerful poem, we have to be sensitive to this matter, and that is what you are doing, sometimes instead of mending, we make matters worst. Good advice the power lies within the individual to be all they can be as well.

    Hi Kim thanks for your wonderful comments. This my dear is an excellent poem, I've been there so I can very much relate. Although we all try to be there for others, don't lose yourself in the process. First take care of number one. This is beautiful, keep writing! much love, Donielle
