Enough, already! I can't stand it!
You shouldn't talk, it's not your place
You can feel that, just don't say it
Go and say it to their face!

I'm as guilty, I'll admit it
Sometimes I can't keep it in
But there's no excuse, no reason for it
I won't stand for it again

If you think that this is better
Talking bad behind their back
You're mistaken, sinful liar
You need to grasp the truth you lack

If you think it makes you cooler
To lie and smile to their face
It's neither right nor popular
And it will never be your place

If the reason that you hate them
Comes about every day
You need to fess up, need to tell 'em
Or it will never go away

Why do you even tell me this?
Why the constant agravation?
I don't want to know what it is
Don't want to fall to the temptation

If you think it gives you power
Makes you better cause you're right
Then you, my friend, are just a coward
Just cause you think it gives you the right

Enough, already, just be quiet
Go spread your hatred somewhere else
Just shut up, don't wanna hear it
You're just becoming them yourself

Just fess up, its not your place
Don't let those gossip lies come back
Go and say it to their face
And stop talking behind their back!


The author's comments:
This is dedicated to every person who has ever gossiped behind someone's back who was to cowardly to say it to their face. Seriously, we don't care, and it just causes bigger walls to be built between you and this person. If you hate them for something they do continuously and all you do is say how bad it is when they turn their back, they won't stop doing it. Tell them to their face!

I see now.  How creative.  ^.^  I'm sorry if I say anything offensive to you on it. [sheepish look]  I don't really know how to convey my emotions into debates very well sometimes, as you probably might have seen, so it could be quite...intense.

Yeah it's good to get it off your chest but....

May I just point out that you are doing the same thing that you are saying not to do in your poem. Not to be rude or anything. :) Oh and speaking of crawfordkid, he posted a thread so that you guys can debate on. I will be watching.

Yes, though this particular poem was spiked between someone and (shhh, don't tell) Crawfordkid.  Yeah, I kinda ranted, but it was getting a little borish.
