Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)


We travel down so many roads,
during the course of our lives.
Occasionally we have to stop awhile,
and ask someone for advice.
Not all advice is good,
and nor is it bad.
However, advice is advice;
to all we should take heed.
A little help is always welcome,
from where ever it may come.
It’s just how we use it,
which makes it good or bad.

    Each individual has something of merit to say, all we have to do is take what works for us and put the other away, possibly for another day. We must be willing to listen and then make our own decisions remembering that we learn something new every day. Excellent poem David, I like it very much.--Melvina-- (Report) Reply
