Untitled ("If You Let Them") - Dauché

"People will use you, if you allow them to.
They'll walk all over you as if "doormat" is printed on your forehead,
only if you let them.

They'll take your kindness for weakness.
They'll want you to work for free,
while you're putting money in their pockets,
if you let them.

All you wanted was a Thank You,
but you let them.

Today, will you stop them?
the choice is yours,
a wise one in the making,
i hope.

Funny thing is, even the negative can become a positive.

Sometimes you just have to sit back and observed.
Watch actions and listen to every word.

No sob story here, just lessons learned and a sign of wisdom.
So I smile."
