R is for Retaliate!


When life is unfair to you,
retaliate and be very unfair!

When people treat you so bad,
shoot them with prayer!

When surrounded with negativity,
hurl them with positivity!

When somebody puts you down,
kick them higher!

When attacked by depression,
Punch it and say, “You can’t get me!”

Who wants life to be fair?
Surely not you! RETALIATE!

Whew! That feels good!

How was it when you were a thorn and somebody turned you into a crown?

Did you wish life should be fair?

    This is right up my ally.

    I’m working to flip my thoughts from negative to positive.

    Thanks for this.

    It helped a lot in a moment when I am not in such good energy. =)

    A way too cool attitude – I have found nothing has a greater impact on a negative by being positive despite the urge to travel the same route

    • bendedspoon Says:

      So true! So I thank God so much for each positive person I met. Ever know a Dad who’s happy to be with his sons in the mall even while singing Fireworks? That’s one cool and positive Papa! Blessings to you 🙂

  7. A great Easter poem Bendedspoon. Life should never be fair, for if it were then we’d all be damned. The most unfair thing that ever happened to humanity is celebrated now. God bless

    My mother always said ‘life is not fair’ when I said ‘that’s not fair’. Overcoming life’s challenges brings the soul’s perfection. When we face someone who is being unfair, there is always a reason why we have this challenge.
    Thought provoking poem. Great.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      There is always an opportunity to learn from fairness or unfairness. It’s up to us if we will take the lesson, learn, grow from it, and share the learnings. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! Blessings to you 🙂

  22. This was my favorite line:

    “When attacked by depression,
    Punch it and say, ‘You can’t get me!’”

    Great post!

  23. trisha Says:

    just loved it.

  24. Rea, I am so glad that God is not truly fair, because if He was I would get what I deserve. Instead, in all unfairness, I get eternal life, peace, and joy! Plus, I get lots of cool sisters and brothers in Christ, many of whom I’ve never met in person, but I will get to meet them in Heaven some day. It may not be fair, but that’s okay with me. Peace, Linda

  25. Kim Nelson Says:

    Kill ’em with kindness!

  26. Hmm, kind of stuck in-between with fair and unfair.. *LOL*, all confused I have to say..

    But it was simply great after reading your piece.. as though I have gotten all the negative energy out in me and kick, banishing all that surrounds me.. you know, breaking them into smaller cells..

    Another interesting and insightful piece from you..

  27. Vinay Says:

    Inspiration in retaliation! 😀 Amen to your beautiful ideals, Bendedspoon! I agree and admire!

  28. Krisse Says:

    Positively angry, or those were the first words coming to my mind:D A great poem!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Yup just like when you comfort someone you love when in fact you want to wring her neck. Positivity helps — yourself too. Blessings to you 🙂
