Screw Ups

Screw Ups

We’re told that should stand by those
Who are having it rough
But there’s a point where even Warriors
Say “That’s enough”

We show support and have hope much
Longer than most would last
But there’s a point where patience should
Be a thing of the past

And that’s with Screw Ups, people who
Aren’t trying very hard
People with ingratitude
Who simply disregard

The caring and concern that their
Friends and family show
Once again, the Warrior
Says what causes most woe

“What you’re doing hasn’t,
Doesn’t, and won’t work for me
I’m letting go ‘cause you’re a Screw Up
Of highest degree”

The Warrior lets go and stops
Letting Screw Ups frustrate
They don’t hold animosity
Or any kind of hate

They simply give up hope which is
An act most cannot do
We want to think that everyone
Could improve and come through

The Warrior’s a realist
And knows a truth that’s bleak:
Some people are permanently
Selfish, scared and weak

The Warrior has the courage
To let the Screw Ups go
They must fend for themselves if they
Do stand a chance to grow

And Warriors are weary when
A Screw Up says they’ve changed
They know that transformation won’t come
From being estranged

It comes from striving, pondering
From giving, sacrifice
It comes from letting go of self
Which is a heavy price

That most Screw Ups just cannot pay
Because “self” is their life
They place their own happiness before
That of a husband, wife

A son, a daughter or parent
A stranger or a friend
Quit on Screw Ups and your time
On better causes spend

    “People with ingratitude”
    totally get it ……
    unfortunately in our world – there are people that still don’t realize that saying THANK YOU is a giant thing ……. Gratitude is everything –
    and it doesn’t have to do with faith or religion or anything like that –
    it’s just being a human being that knows that Gratitude is a four letter word = LOVE
    breathing – grateful
    smiling – grateful
    able to give from the heart – grateful
    i love this one Miro …..
    Acuity of Life = You

    Thank you 🙂 Cat 🙂

    Yes, many just DO not get it… as they think only of Self.. and what I call the Woe is me syndrome.. wanting sympathy and yet unable to give of themselves.. Sad… I have spent lots of time on Woe is me’s.. But to no avail.. Now I spend a little more time on Me… Making sure I try to live in gratitude..
    Thank you for posting… Im sure we all of us have them within our Cirlce of friends and family..
    There are no helping some Miro……

    ‘Longer than most would last…’
    Such true, firm words.

    Great post about how true warriors “let go” and get on with living and loving!

Speak up, fellow Warrior!
