How do you feel about gossip?

2 Corinthians 12:20

“For I am afraid that when I come I may not find you as I want you to be, and you may not find me as you want me to be. I fear that there may be discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, slander, gossip, arrogance and disorder.”

The first poem explains how gossip can destroy your career. Remember it’s all business

No Soul On Ice

When it’s below freezing
in their hearts
by any means necessary
make each day hard
Slowly destroying
and taking
credit for everything
you got.
Judgmental views
and they leave clues
and the words chew
your powerful tool.
I’m talking about
your mind
when in a political bind.
Your intellect is insulted,
heart is assaulted.
Though they don’t
seem belligerent,
will be quick to attack
you with kindness.
Are you confused
or blinded?
A hero they impersonate
but they are really snakes
act fake.
Contaminate, spike, and lace
the fluid
you need in order to live.
Leave you leaking
like oil from an engine.
Slowly dying
as you crying
begging for forgivness.
A hockey ring
with no hockey players
is symbolic and resides
deep inside
the liver.
Every organ inside shivers
like the homeless man
in winter.
Change color
like teeth
when you don’t brush them.
from bright white
to dark yellow
is the description
of your fellow
classmates and co-workers
as you complain
to your scoial worker
about the abuse and treatment
you receiving.
She speaks with a voice soft
that’s soothing.
Tell you the rights thing
she has your attention
and you are listening.
You are complaining
about a racist
Mention his name
Social worker hear this
and seems sympathetic.
She hugs you
makes you comfortable
Tells you
she looks forward
to seeing you next week
but in this world
trust in weak.
She has a fling thing
with the social service director
and he is related
to the racist
you were describing
You mentioned the racist name
and she passes the information
so she can get promotion.
Destruction because of corruption
and you don’t know it
You was betrayed by a deceiving
who told you
everything you say
is confidential.
Promises are always broken
when someone is addicted
to attention.
The only mentor
you had
turns her back
on loyalty
for money.
A mixture of serpents
and Judas
Such a bad combination
Your life now headed for destruction
and you don’t even know it.
Social service director
has connections
to destroy your future forever
A soon to be lesson you
will remember
The temperture of the heart
of most
is a hockey ring without
hockey players
No Soul on Ice

This next poem explains on how to watch out for people that gossip because that ones that gossip are usually your enemies pretending to be your friend.

Play The Snake Close

So crafty and set
in their ways.
Play games and
cause pain.
Big smile across
the face
as they surround
negativity around
your space.
Attack behind your
and kill you with kindness.
With you they pretend
to laugh
but they laughing at you.
Can’t keep tounges
in their mouth
and you is all
they gossip about.
Snakes in church
accept blessings
but corrupted at work
by abusing power
making employees lives
getting hardworking people
Snakes preach
forgive and forget
as a tatic
to avoid static
when they see a threat
so they rather
attack a rabbit
and that’s their habit
weak is their addiction,
that they poison, corrupt
and devour
because snakes are cowards.
You ever seen a snake
attack a hawk?
A hawk is the threat
that won’t be lead to
and they see everything
from right and left
Become the hawk
that play the snake close

Does Rumors Override Facts?

Believe what you hear, believe what you see but yet you don’t look in the glass.
You state you listen before you speak, but still gossip about someone’s past.
Why be the road bump to someone’s path,
decreasing a person’s reputation on the bar graph?
You may face karma for taking adavantage of the popularity your given
and exposing the negative attention that someone else is receiving.
Even if the truth is accurate, his business is his business
even if you was a eye witness.
but in this case you wasn’t and I’m starting to think are you jealous to believe something
when you wasn’t there from the beginning.
Secondary info carries more weight that
the primary facts
when the secondary info is heavy like a wooden baseball bat
and primary facts holds no weight like a empty scale.
This jealously of yours may trap you like a whale and karma is the harpoon.
Problem is popularity overrides the truth
Gossip is a huge problem. Two most common places I believe people gossip the most at school, work and church, but why does gossip happens? Comment below and explain briefly why you think people like to gossip?

Do you think people would still gossip if jeasouly in people hearts did not exist?

Do quiet people gossip the most(remember they say quiet people are the ones you have to watch)?

  1. I think poeple gossip because they compare themselves to others.
    So jealousy might be the main reason why people start gossiping.
    But also most of the gossip spread isn’t even partly true, I guess people give in to their prejudices too easily. And instead of making the effort to get to know a person better they just stick to their airy opinions about them.

    And I don’t think you can say quiet people gossip more than everyone else, they might just be shy or even introverted.
    I made the experience that it’s usually the other way around because some people just gossip because they love to talk. Maybe people are just so bored of their own lives that they need to talk about others…

    I think it’s important to point out to people who gossip that it’s wrong what they’re doing.
    Everyone should have the opportunity to form their own oppinion and not taking gossip for the truth. Also if you don’t like what somebody’s doing go talk to them in person instead of pointing it out to others who might not even be involved.

    Ephesians 4,29 – 32:
    “Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift.

    30 Don’t grieve God. Don’t break his heart. His Holy Spirit, moving and breathing in you, is the most intimate part of your life, making you fit for himself. Don’t take such a gift for granted.

    31-32 Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk. Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you.”

    • I agree with everything you have said ☺☺

      I loved your response
      I am going to check out your blog.
      Some people gossip becuase they watch their elders gossip about others people.
      Alot of people love drama and gossip when it’s about other people until you are the one to gossip about
      Thank you for your feedback and God bless you!

  2. I love this! Gossiping is a drug a habit that people have adopted and not sure as to why. I’ve been on both spectrum’s of being a “reformed gossiper” I think for me it was the factor of trying to fit in and take a side in which, I shouldn’t have done because the person that’s gossiping may not even know the reason why they’re really doing it – most people do it because they don’t have nothing better to do and others do it to try and ruin someone’s reputation and/or character. The bible speaks of busybodies, going around meddling in people’s business – I try at all cost to shy away from that now and mind my own business as much as possible. Love the sound cloud!! #excited #happy

    • Gossip is contagious. People love drama until they are involved in the drama.
      It’s usually the people that say “I hate drama” that causes the most drama.
      Minding my business helps me to avoid problems, but what’s funny is people will still gossip about you saying that your too quiet.

  3. Gossip is the Devils radio and those who do it are simply his DJ’s. The saying goes keep your friends close and your enemies closer, because when it comes to gossip, you don’t know which is which. You want to see someone’s true character, give them a little power. It’s just like talking to the service woman about the racist, and she stabs you in the back to get ahead, no character. That was an interesting poem and it was so true cause that happens everyday, getting stabbed in the workplace. And you’re right, school, work and church is where gossip lives.
    People gossip because its news, its judgement. And people judge others because they don’t want to be judged. The thing about gossip is it’s not just fueled by jealousy, it’s news that’s fueled by life. It’s about getting in other peoples lives because gossip can be facts or lies. If jealousy didn’t exist, hatred still would because the two are different. There’s still six sins left if one falls so gossip is there.
    How do I feel about gossip? I don’t worry about people who talk behind my back, they’re back there for a reason. Great poem my man
    Just catching up!

    • I appreciate you reading and taking the time out to comment.
      Power and money given to a person behind close doors is when you will see the real colors of a person.
      Yeah I agree hate would still exist if jealousy didn’t.
      But as well jealously could easily turn into hate.
      Now days people gossip more on social media.
      The more popular you are, the more people will gossip about you

      • No problem, you are good reading, love your blog my man.
        Very true, colors of greed are given to someone and they will show their hand.
        You’re right, jealousy would manifest into hate or if it didn’t exist, hate would turn into jealousy eventually and you’re back to square one. Much gossip is on social media, keyboard warriors and yes, popularity brings jealousy and jealousy brings gossip.

      • I like that, keyboard warriors lol.
        Everything you said was accurate and it will continue to exist becuase some people can’t help it.

      • Yeah, that’s what I call them. Brave people in the basement. Very true, it will always exist because some things are human nature.
