Making Their Own Decisions

Always!
Or at least more often than not.
There will be someone sharing,
With a group of faithful naysayers...
An unsolicited opinion.
Either about how another feels.
Thinks!
Or has arrived to achieve,
Making their own decisions.
To leave others left believing,
They too also know...
How another who has been discussed,
Feels.
Thinks.
And to find themselves collectively distrusting,
Anything one who has been subjected...
To an opinion about them given,
By someone else sharing...
An unsolicited opinion.
That has left the one to face attitudes.
Moods and disrespect.
Expected to accept while eyebrows are raised.
Folded arms across their chests.
With lips pressed together upset and offended.

'Uh...hello.'

~How dare you approach us after what you've done.
Decided to do.
AND...
Without being given anyone's approval.
Then to feel what you have said about us,
Is okay.
And don't give us that look as if you are innocent.~

'Uh...huh? '

Always!
Or at least more often than not.
There will be someone sharing,
With a group of faithful naysayers...
An unsolicited opinion.
Then to quickly make an excuse to exit.
While hoping they have left behind,
A reason to ignite tempers to flare.
And some hell to heat that breaks loose.

'Who said what and when to you? '

~Sure.
Go ahead.
Stand there and pretend,
We are the ones out of our minds.~

'I can't pretend that.
I've been accused of having talents.
But that one?
I can't do!
Trust me.'
