Isn’t It?

Why is it that many folk need affirmation
For the things that are said when we talk
To others in our daily conversation?
I do it. It’s hard to change. I feel a gawk!

I heard a presenter on TV this morn
Do the same, seeking agreement for something
She’d said in the news. I would not be drawn,
But just sat there, musing and reflecting.

Some end sentences with the question, “Eh?”
Are they seeking agreement to what is said?
Are folk really so extremely insecure,
Or something, simply messing with my head?

What I do know is that I have a habit
That is really hard to change, isn’t it?
