Students live in crowded accommodation. Friction runs high at on... And please accept the colonial British spelling code!

Neighbourhood Feelings

We live in communities all over the world

A cacophony of voices is seldom unheard

We sing and we laugh, we speak and we shout

We sleep at home but then always go out

Returning so tired at the end of the day

We seem to be itchy, it’s often that way.

We pick on the person whose nearest at first

Explode our ill feeling aloud in a burst

The truth is it lies in the problem somewhere

A touch too loud music, a mess on the stair

We all can find fault, it’s not easily hid

More difficult I guess, to get permanently rid.

This time it’s my fault the next time is yours

And sometimes it’s not clear, only rumours.

So if mea culpa, then say sorry now

Do it today - it ends every row.

For you are all neighbours you need to get on

Harbour no ill wills, make sure they’re all gone.

Pick up the spirits and get on with the day

Life is for living the communal way.

Respect others feelings as you’d like them to be

Then they’ll respond, in all honesty.

The grass seems greener in the Outback waste

But home is where, you're presently based.

Neighbours are not just ‘them on the stairs’

Each of us must be a neighbour who cares.

To Laura, Jenny and Cloe with love, Miller

We're all in on this world together, and I can "feel your friction!" You've penned this so well. Thanks for sharing this wonderful and insightful prose. My best, Gloria

Sounds like city living! I live in a tiny village, nice neighbours, BUT the hedges around my front garden are the noisiest, busiest and most crowded high rises ever!! Great poem. Jackie <> <

Sage advice, Miller. People all too easily mistake others for 'dumping grounds.' There are better ways to unstress.

Great work.
