Let it go!

Why make that an issue?

Focus on the task at hand.

There’s no sense in rehashing

what’s over and done with.


"Erode" comes from the word rodent.

Nagging eats away at relationships.

No one wants to be compared to a pest,

But your mouth is perhaps the reason

for why you can't keep a man!


If you’re 30 and hollering men are no good

then the problem is probably YOU!

The reality of this may hurt,

But home is supposed to be a haven of peace.


Of course, there are two sides to every story.

Some men do indeed have trifling ways.

Others are not man enough to be faithful to one woman.

Too many nice women have been betrayed.


If you know up front

you’re not going to be faithful,

then step off

and don't waste the lady's time.


Let her live her life in peace.

She doesn't need the burden

of dealing with your trifling behind!


Then there are meddling in-laws.

Some husbands act as if mom can do no wrong.

Be a man and put mother in her place!

No human is above the marital arrangement.


This may not sound too profound,

But so many problems

can be resolved

if people stop complicating the simple things.


Time is better off spent on priorities

like giving homage to our Supreme Being.


Some people won’t agree with this,

But family is way more important

Than the sound that goes, "Cha-Ching-Ching!


Because when it’s all said and done

our loved ones are all we have,

and making simple stuff hard

can cause us to miss out

on all of them if we’re not careful!

AMEN to this write. You said what has needed saying for years. I've seen women nag and nag about silly things that don't mean anything, they need to look at the bigger picture. At times it the men who nag, not always the women. PEADE and HARMONY is so much better than fighting. Wish I'd written this one.
