WHAT I LEARNED FROM LIFE
What have I learned these many years
I suck on my eraser
Chew the covers of my books
The first lesson is
I am not in control
Often there is nothing I can do
I stand witness
I mind my own business
I laugh at the rain
There was something about..
If you can’t say something nice
In the 8thgrade I served 64 detentions
I couldn’t stop talking
Treat others as you would like to be treated
This seems fair
Help those in need
I scramble through my purse
For money to share
Never cheat or lie
It gets you nowhere
The truth in whatever garb
It wears today will do
You ain’t nothing special
No better no worse
Than your fellow man
So give him a break
Life isn’t easy for him either

Nice last stanza about giving our fellow man a break. Also good advice in these lines: “The truth in whatever garb
It wears today will do” Those 64 detentions in the 8th grade make me wonder if it was you or the teacher. Regardless it is a good record to be proud of.
Thanks for your comment!!
Oh, Frank, you are the sweetest!! Thanks for the comment.
Life wisdom, Annell. I smiled at the asses to asses, lust to lust……..very witty.
Yes, Sherry sometimes I amuse myself. Thanks for reading and commenting.
Yes, sometimes I entertain myself with my “funnies”. Thanks for the comments.
Sorry, wrong poem, I read them one after the other. I cant find a place to post a comment on the lust poem. This poem is another good read……..I can see him, captain of his boat, dreaming of the sea.
I am a bit confused by wordpress? It does pretty mush as it wants. I think you just click on the top line. Takes you to the place to make a comment at the bottom.
Love the thought of acceptance in the fault of your fellow man.
Thank you so much…you know, he without sin, cast the first stone…let no stones be thrown.
Thank you for your comment Bjorn. Do you know how to make the little dots over the “o”?
On a English keyboard you have to press the key for ¨ before you press o… On a Swedish keyboard it’s a separate key. If I do the umlaut ü I will need to do the same… but Bjorn works fine 🙂
Thanks I’ll give it a try.
Treat everyone the same, we are all human beings underneath ~
Yes! Thank you Grace.
Nice advice. Yeah…”So give him a break.”…Like that.
If we are ever to hope for one for ourselves. Thanks for your comments.
So so late to the reading and posting for this one….glad they keep “the lights on in the pub” for us latecomers.
Reading this early AM with coffee in my hands….and smiling I am at these lines
“In the 8thgrade I served 64 detentions

SUCH levity here………..LOVE it! 🙂
