When one dwells in La-La Land,
The misery of others, they don't understand.
They are ignorant, compelled to blurt advice.
They drone on, never thinking twice.
They read verse that was penned with pain and tears,
Verse about suffering that has gone on for years.
They review, comment and look for errors,
While breaking bones and sucking out the marrow.
Comments are uncaring, " just sniff a rainbow, let pain go!"
Not have experienced that pain, how in the hell do they know?
Their advice flows freely, they know it all,
They can solve it all, just heed their call!
They send regards from La-La Land,
Where nothing touches them, all is well and taken in hand.
They just ignore, never hear,
They do not validate someone's feelings and fears.
Their words are lofty and float above,
They hold no caring, compassion or love.
They do not wear a judge's robe, no one has invited them to preach,
They do not have a clue, but want to teach.
Hear the pain, try to understand,
Or keep yor sorry ass in La-La Land!
For all who read and comment, a BIG THANK-YOU

|I used to work with a person that your poem described to perfection...I also have a friend whose daughter is a song writer, she just wrote a beautiful gospel song titled...Walk A Mile in My Shoes...goes well with your poem. Well said my friend!

|Good to see you back.
I hear you...and yes...only those who know how dark it can get deep within...would know what real pain can do to you...and to some it becomes a victory to see other jumping the cliff.

A powerful write - some have nothing better to do than to bring others down to La La Land - well done.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
