ascend

when life serves up the pointy end
no need to get agro or pretend
stay calm think don’t reoffend

for each reaction does extend
our ability to comprehend
try to buck your usual trend

learn to be a better friend
to yourself so you can mend
find a solution that will transcend

all the bother and emotive spend
that destructive turmoil will rend
measured responses I commend

  1. This was my favorite line in this one: learn to be a better friend
    to yourself so you can mend
    It really, really spoke to me! And as always, I am so impressed with your rhyming ability!

  2. Think before speaking… always a good thing.
    I like that pencil up close. Like a giant is taking a break from creating and set his pencil so it wouldn’t roll off into the ocean. 🙂

    • exactly my thought when I saw it … a giants pen holder 🙂
      Had seen the bottom part of that for decades and always thought it needed finishing. So sculptor made the top half and painted the existing pole 🙂
