I have my own problems to deal with

They come to me with their tall tales.
I pretend to listen to their fables
Appropriately sad, I say
It's well my sister. 
Everything will be fine 
I say it like I truly mean it.
The truth is,
I have my own problems to deal with.


People throw banters and enquire about each other 
They act like they mean well for you.
Can I get a little change from you.
I haven't paid my school fees.
My rent is still outstanding
They turn their backs
 And say
I have my own problems to deal with.


We love to talk about ourselves,
Who will listen
Who wants to listen to your problems
Half of the time your talking, their mind is elsewhere
Halfheartedly paying attention to your rants
At the back of their minds, they scoff
And say,
I have my own problems to deal with.


Thank you for listening you say gratefully
My dear, your welcome.
Anything for you, they lie
They roll their eyes behind you
Who wants to carry another person's burden
Who wants to listen to your secrets?
Who wants to keep your secrets by the way?
I'll pass they say,
I have my own problems to deal with.

    It is a nice poem. :o) But you posted it 14 times. You might need to delete a few of those? The X on the right side of your poem.
