There are some lessons in life that never seem to lose their sting….that’s how you know you learned them.
I took a little bait last night…edged on by some old business and a long time need to make someone see things differently.
I saw it comin’, complete with the voice of Miss Universe sayin’ “don’t take the bait”.
I started pullin’ up old cards in my head…I could see’um plain as day.
All the signs were there, visceral, intuitive, and downright “know better” .
It was then I felt the sting, just painful enough to send me back to my corner.
We hurt for a reason…all pain is a warnin’ no matter what form it takes.
