For someone I know, who doesnít have a clue ... a future character of conflicting significance with opposite reality. A woman lawyer sues and as she loses her trial, her life falls apart and she assumes the role of a loser and just gives up. A colleague who knows how to push her buttons sends her this poem in an email.

You donít really get it,
so donít even try.
Push aside your ideas,
lay down and cry.

Just give up, itís easy,
no one really cares.
Forget your loud speeches,
ignore the promised stares.

Stop the mental progress,
never make a plan.
Concentrate on getting old,
never believe again.

Stay in bed and sleep long,
ignore the door and phone.
Disregard all people,
itís best to be alone.

Live your insignificance
avoid the logicís edge.
Spit into all common sense,
lock it with a pledge.

Thatís the path youíve chosen,
a simple miserable lie.
Since you wonít listen,
stick to it and die.

Note: If the above fits you in any way, then read these found on this site for the antidote =
Life's Too Short

Face The Doom

An example of shock therapy here. Sometimes this kind of extreme 'negative' motivation or what is commonly known as 'reverse psychology' works. I know it has with me on occasion. Well written. Looking forward to reading the rest of your work.

Interesting indeed

Reviewed by Felix Perry 5/6/2007
Interesting though a little on the negative side...although, I get the feeling that it was written in a sort of ironic way to perhaps shock the receivor back into reality.
