Kids these days!

birthday-1835443_1920 (1)Two of the young guests at my daughter’s 13th birthday party  said things I’d never expected.

Kid # 1: “Please pass me the broccoli.” (yes, we bought a veggie tray, along with the junkfood, we are ‘those’ parents)

Kid # 2: “I hate chocolate cake!”

Eh? Say Whaaattt??!!  What’s with kids these days?

Heed The Wise

That road ahead, the warning signs placed by those who’ve gone before,

I sense deception, they cannot be trusted, they guide to the mundane

A life of fun, adventure, my way, anything else is a bore

Ignore their words, their banal minds have grown far too lame

Steer my life away from stoicism, only frivolity satisfies my core

Nothing untoward shall happen to me, it’s all a silly game

Help! Your advice had merit, should have heeded, mired forever I’ll be

Shake your heads, when I open my eyes, that’s what I’ll see

No? Wait! With rope and chain you’re all coming back for me

You rescued me, despite my mockery, set me on a clear road

My family, friends, because of you, I will live each day, gratefully.
