What makes an adult act like a child?
Crying when situations warrant calm,
insisting when it’s best to walk away.
Let’s look at it today:

What makes a human grow so wild?
I thought it’s just beasts that harm.
Why does man’s action betray?
People biting more than they can chew!

Shouldn’t man be tactful and mild?
Weighing implications unlike a ram,
organizing a befitting place to stay,
being in charge and not falling prey;
to Tantrums!

Shouldn’t we shun pride and consider?
Living life in outbursts,
Blinded by anger and frustration,
That’s something I won’t subscribe to:

About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

  4. Any time I see an adult shouting and out of control I visualize a two year old child having a temper tantrum.


    • Laughs! That’s exactly it! I really wonder why certain people can’t reallize that they have to grow up, no matter how hard one tries to enlighten them! Thanks much for the comment dear, I’m expectant.
