The Same Old Stuff
I think I have had, just about enough
of the sympathetic "stick it out and be tough"

I abhor the person who said the line
"don't worry honey everything'll be fine"

Beware to the person who comes my way
saying "tomorrow will be a better day"

I wish I could meet the person who made
that all around classic "don't be afraid"

Can't you understand what these lines do!
nothing, thats my point of view

People get sick of the same old stuff
not everyone is your definition of "tough"

These lines are a way to justify means
that we've done our part as human beings

Some people think "Oh their fine"
after the end of your clever little line

But do you understand the turmoil and strife
that may be poisoning this persons life

They dig for understanding like a heartbroken miner
and all you can give is a sorry one liner

We all must do our part
in helping people gain a new start

these things go slowly I know
the least we can do is try though

People get sick of the same old stuff
as I've said Ive had enough

Persistence is a charm. Never surrender. I believe a person needs to hear some words of encouragment. Consider the opposite: negativity can sap the spirit. Interesting poem.
