Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.
There are many people whom you come across in this world, but there are only a very few who care for you, encourage you, and make you feel good about yourself.
Then there are other people, people who make sure you feel bad about yourself, stab you in the back and dig pits for you to fall in, and when you do, they feel great. Many such people are there in this world.
What you should do is ignore such people, not get affected by them, and move on in life. With a prayer on your lips and faith in God, you will breeze through the journey of life, keep ongoing.
Some people make you laugh,
Some who make you smile,
Some who make you feel,
Life is not worthwhile,
There are some
Who truly care,
Who keeps you going on,
Some who stand and laugh,
When you hit the ground.
Some waiting hatching a plot,
To make you trip and fall,
Some the evilest of the lot,
Making sure you sink deep down,
The world is filled with people,
Some good and some bad,
You have to learn to live,
Among people in this world,
Don't let the bad get to you,
Never let it break you down,
After all, troubles are passing clouds,
Never there to stay,
Have courage and confidence in yourself
To make them go away,
Remember God made you,
With care and lots of love,
Take courage, keep your faith,
Never stop; keep going on.

Thank you, Brenda for reading and commenting so many of my poems. Much appreciated.
BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on June 05, 2020:
I had that book " I'm ok"...also.
Guess it got misplaced over the years.
God made each one of us to be special in our own way.

RoadMonkey a sorry that you had a bad experience, there are some people who are mean and spiteful.
RoadMonkey on April 17, 2019:
True poem. I read a book one time, called "I'm OK, You're OK", about people those who tried to bring me down. After reading that I always felt sorry for those who tried to those who tried to bring me down. In the book they are called "I'm Ok, You're NOT Ok", though they could even be the I'm NOT OK, You're NOT OK (very sick).

Beautiful. In a good way, it brings variety to life and helps us learn to deal with people differently. E.g having patience and being tolerant, then knowing which people to spend a lot of time with and those to spend less time with. Thanks
