There have been those who said, what a privileged life you have. People only see what they want to see, jealousy is a terrible thing. Jealousy makes you ugly shades of green, as you are totally consumed. Where were you when I cried all night long, only to find an alligator tear soaked pillow in the morning. Where were you when we were married on thirty-five dollars,
no car~home or jobs. I had no breakfast, on Friday I would split a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. People have been meaner than I can write, their words and actions with much delight. I learned from two ladies, they both had very similar lives. Both should have been filled, with hate. One was, it ruined her life. The other lady, kept love~happiness all around. Hurt is a troubling thing, life is filled with all kinds of hurt. Some hurt you can see, some hurt you cannot see. Hurt is still hurt, it fills one with pain~tears. As for the second lady, I also believe in love~happiness all around. I love to give smiles out, did you know they are Free??? I say~never judge a person on what you see, you may find an alligator tear soaked pillow in their bed just like me.
