We can give strength to those that need it just remember to keep some in reserve.


A Little Bit Hidden!
Every bit a life is being drained from you by anger, drama and distrust.
So much energy is being used for needless emotions that turn into dust.
By letting someone bring you down and giving them that kind of power.
Is only asking for trouble and makes everything good turn bitter & sour.
It seems now and then when one goes down; they try to drag you along.
But you must draw from deep within you because this is simply wrong.
Occasionally, we give so much of ourselves to others that are in dire pain,
Then find there’s nothing in us leftover, that we’re completely drained.
These are times we must meditate and heal, ‘til we again are whole.
At these times we’re not good for anyone. we need to replenish our soul.
It is good to give of yourself to others for that is what we’re supposed to do.
But next time keep a little bit extra hidden inside, something just for you.

Bonnie May

Truth to your writing-it seems harder now to find any happy people, much less have any reserve for ones self.

Yes Bonnie, if one intend to keep on helping we cannot get power flat.
Nice admonition.

Excellent poem about being yourself and not letting others tell you who you are. Yes, it's true, you should give to others, but as you say, keep some for yourself. Great write.

Excellent advice, my dear Bonnie. Negativity breeds negativity; really try not to bring others down. Concur with Ed: need to save some for yourself (hope we're not the cause). Well said. :(

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

More sage advice, from Dr. Bonnie.

Hi Bonnie,I hate people who are full of negativity.Unfortunately I have 2 or 3 family members who does nothing but put stress and aggrevation in my life that doesn't need to be put in there in the first place.I'm always a happy person who sees things in a open-minded and carefree way even if people are angry or full of negativity.Its hard to deal with,but that is not going to stop me from enjoying my life and I will continue to always maintain my beautiful spirit and soul.Your poem speaks the truth.We can give to others,but we definitely need to hold back a little bit because we never know when someone is going to turn bad or turn on us.Great poem,take care
Love and Hugs always

Good advice; I try to stay away from people who are unhappy. I have enough problems of my own; I don't need to feel worse than what I already do at times! I'd much rather be around people who are happy!

Good write, Bonnie; brava!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :)
