The Abcs Of Life

The Abcs Of Life short poem

Photo by Jitabebe

Able and ready time to move
Beat of your own, find the right groove
Chatter and friendship, have a drink
Diet forthcoming on the brink
Echoed faith, stare straight above
Fireworks and cupid perfect love

Guitar strings and rasp whispered blues
Heels and straps, brand new shoes
In a pinch, unsure what to say
Just set the example, show the right way
Kindness and honesty worn on the sleeve
Last man standing, no way will he leave
Money corrupts, greed kills your spirit
No one to listen there’s no one to hear it
Once you’re ahead maintain the lead
Pick at the scab then watch it bleed

Quiet your mind it’s not over yet
Roll those dice place your bet
Sing to the choir we’ve heard it before
Trust your gut right down to the core
Understand this some folks just don’t care
Very too often a wing and a prayer
Wait, it is worth it not need hurry
X-ray my bones am I too old to scurry
You took a shot by the seat of your pants
Zig Zagged when you could create your own dance
