It baffles me to no end that people hate it when others they know seemed to have found inner peace and happiness. They do whatever they can to bring those that are happy back down to earth with gossip and rumors. Rumors are like letting the cat out of a bag – once released you will never ever get them back in the bag again.
The hurt and the pain caused by rumors and gossip sometimes can be more destructive in their aftermath than wind fanned flames. Shortly after man had learned to talk and form ideas into words began the rumors and gossip. What is wrong with the human species that with just a one-word or one sentence we can reduce the happiness of friends and family into a melting pot of pain and suffering?
Rumors and gossip is the pastime of unhappy folks,
They seem to swim the muddy waters with unkind strokes.
Rumors and gossip are started by haters and spread by fools,
They know nothing of the situation, their mouth becomes a tool.
Rumors show the insecurity of those that spread it,
And they do not care of the pain and misery they commit.
Seems we cannot stop the rumors from spreading,
Or maybe even mend the hearts they are shredding.
Can’t really change these short-sighted folks thoughts,
As they relish in turning loving people’s lives into knots.
How sad it is that rumor spreaders are so jealous,
That their constant attacks are becoming overzealous.
Rumors are made by miserable and unhappy souls,
If there is any justice someday, they will be in the reverse role.
Rumor spreaders talk behind my back and show zero class,
Believe me, they are now in the perfect position to kiss my ass.
