This is great! A lot of people are like bees.. They try to say a lot of things which are too unnecessary to say without thinking that they have sting your soul. A 7 from me Jan!

Words that sting could cause a lot of pain. It is not right to cross the line; some harm caused is irreparable. Well done Jan for raising awareness. Hugs // paul

Unfortunately there are many who have that holier than thou mentality.... There poop don't stink....well they can climb back up on their high horse....I don't respect them nor do I give them the time of day. They are looking for attention and/or drama.....excellent Jan...hugs Tim

Sting like a bee, I too have wrote this kind of poetry, for words and deeds they hurt the soul, pierced and bleeding leaving a hole. But know there is bandaids in the crowd, we are a million voices and we all whisper loud. Hugs

Cont. Life has already its own problems and its too short to give lots of importance to people who in reality are nothing but a zero,because for me people who ard troublemakers and busybodies are loosers.I love the wsy you show support to our sweet Eileen..Hugs.

Jan..There are some losers in life who hurt people in life due to envy or lack of thought,but We should never let such people let us down.We should give them a cjance and maybe another or another but if what they keep offering is envy,then we must ignore them like a flying mosquito and move on.

Hugs, sweetie....Solidarity here. Love you...Words can sting. I know I have stung others too. I can't deny the fact. I ask for forgiveness, but when someone goes too far....they need to be told their limits. Great write. Thanks for adding my name.

The thing is Eileen no one really knows what is going on in our lives - we may share some of our thoughts not all and that is where our vulnerability lies:-( Hugs jan xxx
