A Poem by Kaye Adell

Why do we treat each other the way we do? Do we ever stop to think how we treat each other? We don't try to work things out. We just scream and yell, and then, there is silence...neither side ever speaks to the other side ever again. Relationships are broken, and what's it for? We do this because I have to be right, and you have to be wrong. We do this because of PRIDE. We are a prideful people. We try to glamorize our pride in society, and it tares us apart. There is a difference between pride and self-respect. That's what we need to learn. We need to learn respect everyone we meet. One day the person that you love the most might not be there because of that pride.

Very true..and because of this..I try not to ever go to bed without a resolution between myself and the one I am angry at. Not worth it at all. Nicely done.

Writing is a hobby of mine that very few people know about. I hope your reviews will help me become a better author. I've thought about writing for a career but not too seriously. more..
