People being People

People come
People go
Some are kind
Some are not
Many make their mark
Many are just there
Taking up precious air and space.

People love
People hate
Some do both
Some do neither
Many wish they could
Many hope they don't
It's always a fateful choice.

People help
People hinder
Some do nothing
Some do more
Many just sit there
Many hope to provide
Just what is that's needed.

People lie
People cheat
Some do one
Some the other
Many seldom do neither
Many can't understand
Why neither is nicely received.

People question
People wonder
Some question why
Some just ponder
Many try to understand
Many give up trying
To know what's the motive.

Time comes
Time goes
Emotions show up
Emotions are hidden
You try to see
You try to feel
Why it's done to you.

I sense some pain it a loss or is it just a lack of presence?

If you are strong and push through the pain and the fear, you often find that happiness is waiting for you on the other side.

No. More just general frustration. After a while it seems like some people just don't care about being courteous or considerate. It takes so little time to just be either. If the effort is taken to be either, then take the time and make the effort to do so back. You should teach a course in it for many on this site song.

ohboy, you are a dear man and I can't begin to fathom anyone being anything other than courteous to you and considerate of your feelings, but I suppose they're out there. Some folks simply have no home training and some have simply disregarded all they might have been taught. There's no redemption from the affliction of rudeness other than to simply ignore those who offend. I share your frustration quite often, and yes, so many on this site are downright rude. Generally they're the ones who are first to scream bloody murder when they receive the same treatment, not realizing that behavior such as that is usually deserved by the same behavior of their own. All the classes in the world would not save those folks because they are far too self-absorbed to realize they bring it on themselves. I simply choose to surround myself with kind people and leave the rude ones to their own devices. You know you have a friend here, so give me a buzz if you need to talk.
