Some may think that “overstaying your welcome” is impossible,
I simply believe they haven’t encountered a bad guest.
For their unwilling ignorance, I both applaud them as much as I’m concerned for when their perspective may be changed.
While I enjoy & unashamedly encourage generosity,
And I won’t lie or imply that I haven’t been taken advantage of.
Unfortunately, I would sometimes receive warnings;
But then I would extend further generosity or kindness as if to prove a point,
To prove that the person or peoples in question were perceived wrongly.
After all, experience isn’t always the best judge.
In our current era of history,
It seems as though societal displacement is that of an epidemic.
Unfortunately, and yet unsurprisingly, it has no bias or specific target.
Whether you’re age 4, 44, or 94;
You may be either knowingly or unknowingly displaced in some degree,
Even worse is the fact that mental displacement is sometimes more severe than physical.
No matter what kind of displacement,
There are lessons to be learned both during and after it;
But it’s very difficult to see that.
I won’t stop giving,
But I tend to wait a little longer before I offer anything.
