Sandi J Holland


X-actly


Who do you think you are?
Telling me that I can't do that.
I will.
You bet!
I'll X out what you said,
And become x-actly that.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Ever had someone ridicule or criticize your plan or goal, rather than provide encouragement? Ever been around people who consistently behave that way, no matter what? Well, it's a good opportunity to become strong within, before permanently removing yourself from their presence.

    Lol! I like what you said. Just X them out! Lol! If only some people could be! No. Not against the person, just the ways of certain people. Thanks for reading. (Report) Reply

    Very good Sandi. Yes people do tend to be
    belittling sometimes. It makes them feel
    superior. Just X them out! Good write. (Report) Reply
