Recipe For Life

Recipe For Life long poem

Photo by cathyse97

First Pre-Heat the oven, approximately 200 degrees,
Gather your ingredients all around,
For sweet you will need sugar, for savoury some cheese,
Be careful not to spill it on the ground.

Mix the egg and sugar, beat to a smooth paste,
Sieve the flour into it and mix,
You need to take your time, don’t hurry in your haste,
Mistakes they can and do happen like this.

Line your baking tray, be ready to prepare,
Oven gloves they truly are a must,
Place upon the shelf but please do take care,
Then set the oven timer that you trust.

Remember not to look before the time it says,
Check the recipe just once again,
You know that if they’re good you’ll be eating these for days,
I’m quite sure we won’t hear you complain.

When you’re sure they’re done just have a little taste,
Have they turned out the way you had planned?
Will it all be eaten up so there won’t be any waste.
Is it tasty, Is it exquisite is it bland?

Now take this recipe and keep it close at hand,
For in this life you’re going to need the same,
In life you choose the heat so you must understand,
Your oven will not be the one to blame.

Your eggs and your flour will surely represent,
The sustenance you need to have success,
Be sure to take your time, get the outcome that you meant,
The one that fits your life the very best.

The next stage I think is the most important part,
Would you keep the recipe exactly the same,
Would you change the end? Would you change the start?
And was it good enough to make it all again?
