They called her moody Rudy
They had endowed her with those traits
They spent hours discussing her vocals;
at the dining table; even before they could say grace.
Could you call the the Thunder rude for turning you deaf at times?
Could the rain gods be criticized for drenching earthlings with water divine?
And the ocean that roars, and the gusty winds?
They were all doing their job but Rudy was defiled!
Days and years didn’t change their minds
It seems like they couldn’t be another of Rudy’s kind
At first a hurt Rudy would always roar
Until their nagging seemed an endless bore.
Life forces you and breaks you down
But don’t give in if you are not wrong
Smile and turn a deaf ear to all
Don’t let their words make you fall.
Canta Dadlaney (a.k.a zoneofsilence)
The poem is about opinionated people who are biased in their views of others. At times, strong opinions can break down a person but one can always ignore and move on.
