Poem: Sit Back, Relax, and Watch

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Sit Back, Relax and Watch

When your efforts
are not appreciated,
sit back, relax and watch
as the world burns,
not lifting a finger to put out the fire.

When others act insensitive,
shouting words of disappointment, tune a deaf ear for you don't deserve their criticism.

Stop reaching out with guidance
when one is ungrateful,
stand back and watch him
start a sea of flames
he cannot control.
