Words of a painter about art, painting and other thoughts about life, death and things that get in the way. I began my blog 2010.
I like your poem :)
Some people are doomed to keep repeating the same old patterns.
great write I could definitely relate to the theme of this
Yes, a "control drama." That sounds exactly right.
Great final stanza. The boy who cried wolf.
Yes indeed....those repetitive patterns lose their effectiveness in a short period of time.
I too recognize those control dramas by certain folks and tire of them easily....this was wonderful!
So true, some people thrive in creating drama!
Some, it seems, know no other way. Hopefully they can learn, even if belatedly.
A fantastic piece - that articulates an aspect of human interaction that, I don't feel is articulated nearly enough. I have long been amazed (floored, really) at how so many people proceed through their lives, without any ability (it would seem) to step back from their knee-jerk ways of 'being' - and take a hard look at their conduct ... which, on any number of levels, is just plain-not-working for them ... and for those they interact with. It is, as if, they feel they are entitled to dish out whatever they are inclined to dish out and everyone around them, should be up for the next round of their histrionics. The notion that they should get-a-grip and take themselves in hand, in order to be better human beings, it lost on these folks. Unbelievable - to me - and yet, they seem to be everywhere.
Those struggling for control are powerless when they've used all their tricks and hollering becomes just another sad exhibition. Your last verse, a summation makes it simple. We should use it more often. I think it also will be good to keep in ones mind even if intimidated. ..
a great piece of writing.i guess this is how some people interact with each other. to bully, to bluff and intimidate those around them.
We control our own destinies and can blame no-one but ourselves for our fate unless we are foolish enough to be guided by others. Then you are leading their chosen life not yours.
So true Annel.Totally agree with you.Have seen such drama unfold.Doesn't help even after such people are advised and told...
Some people repeat their mistakes and create drama along the way....unfortunate for all around them.
Same stage, same drama... it gets old- and then we notice. A good write!
Yup. Yelling it over and over just makes for monotony. I like your take on this — and on how it loses power in repetition.
Glad to read you again, blessings!
