People I distance from,
Who are disappointed at the slightest of opposition.
Who have an opinion about everything other than self.
Who think its always the other at fault.
Who are just looking to put you down.
Who find happiness see another fall.
Who think its their right to hurt all.
Who put up a face and think just the reverse.
Who think they can always have their way.
Who carry the light but darkness within.
Who are wolves under the sheep skin.
In don’t let them ,
Play with my feelings.
Take advantage of my goodwill.
Nor duped into their stories.
I draw my boundaries clear .
For I want to be distant from such beings.
