Walk before you run
Don't fall if you try to fly.
Think before you speak
Don't stumble telling a lie.
Choose your moments wisely,
Always look them in the eye.
Never think 'Forever' -
One 'Hello' means one 'Goodbye'
Anticipate the weather,
Remember calm before the storm.
Hope is not belief
Don't count your chickens 'til they're born.
Confide in those you trust
But never ill-inform.
Is your glass half full or empty?
Your heart cold or warm?
Always be yourself
Never let them get you down
Take what you need, not what you want
The shawl and not the gown
Keep happiness and joy,
Don't be a Pierrot clown
Live life with Love in your heart
It's easier to smile, than it is to frown.
I loved this poem and if it were a one round contest you would have won, to be honest. I think that you wrote it flawlessly. The last stanza was a bit off at first, but the actual ending was great. I loved how you did the last two lines in each poem, wonderfully thought out (or just written, haha). "Never think 'Forever' - One 'Hello' means one 'Goodbye'." << Loved those two lines. I think that they're what grabbed my attention. Don't get me wrong the beginning was great, but they were the icing on the cake. Just as the two last lines in each stanza.
Wonderfully written, no actual criticism needed at all. You did an outstanding job.
Wow... i love the principle of this poem its like you put all the sayings and truths about life in a poem....and i can totally get the aphroism half full or half empty..
wonderfully done its refreshing reading this poem
