To Tame The Beast

 

 

A wise woman

 

Tames the classless beast

 

Like a cat with a moth,

 

She plays the games,

 

And only makes demands

 

When you're ready to fall hard,

 

Because class isn't something 

 

You learn from a book,

 

It's inbred, 

 

Passed by generations and genes,

 

And by realizing you don't have it,

 

You learn what it means.

Class is all about how you

Class is all about how you like to handle things, I haven't met a class I couldn't handle my way. ;) loved this! Made me think and giggle! ;) 


Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Well said! Some things you

Well said! Some things you either got it or you don't. Maybe I'm narrowed minded but I don't see how to teach "class."


Long days and pleasant nights

Wlliam, I don't think you're

Wlliam, I don't think you're narrow minded at all for thinking that. People live under the misconception that having money or having an education, is the same as having class, and they couldn't be farther from the truth. Class is the confidence that gives a person the sure-footedness of meeting life on life's terms, of facing every problem head on with honesty, sincerity, and integrity spearheading all affairs of importance, but first one has to know what is important...and that's where childrearing and generations of examples of integrity come into play. Someone could be raised by a pack of wolves, but if the wolves had that strength of character needed to obtain "class", then it is possible that person could one day attain it. Unfortunately, integrity is something that goes unrecognised these days --- people have even mistaken that for ego and pride. I know many people who died poor...and classy, and others who rich and classless. It's a choice. 

 

But my poem is about how it gets turned around. The only hope we have at this point is maybe letting people fall hard..and without class, you will undoubtedly in this world we live in today, but if you make demands and they fall...next time, they listen or they perish. Sink or swim.

I fully agree that "class isn't something you learn from a book.It's inbred,passed by generations and genes.And (of course) by realizing that you don't have it"...... BTW what was I trying to write?

interesting

interesting. you speak of her fighting a beast, but you don't come out and say what is it is. instead you leave it open-ended for the reader wander, pander, and possibly make it relate to their own lives. well done.

I'm glad you saw that...

I'm glad you saw that... beasts within and without. We all have them. I have a bad habit of being hard on myself over petty stuff, but when I place the wiser woman in me in charge... things always work out better.

...thannkssssss 4the read!! ♥
