We Write Poems gives us the prompt “If you could go back in time and impart a bit of wisdom to your sixteen year old self, what would you say? “
Would I have listened?
Do what you have to do, on time and with good grace.
Be kind, loving, steadfast, tolerant and true.
Do what you love to do, with a smile on your face.
Laugh when things go wrong, don’t let them make you blue.
Carry on Tuesday suggests we reflect on the nature of friendship.
What is a friend ?
A cat ? A dog ? No, that’s just cupboard love.
My friends are there when I’m in trouble,
as I am there for them.
Company, sympathy, laughter and fun,
reciprocated – that’s what friends are for.
