Having An Open Mind


Some people go through life, not
having an open mind! Whatever
they do and say, happens to be
unkind. They don't trust, most
people they meet, in fact, I'd go
as far, as to say, they never have
been discreet. They don't think
twice, blurting out, what never
should be said. In a matter of
speaking, it's due to the fact,
they've never used their head!
This behavoir is indicative, of a
disruptive life before, and I think
it's time, to put it behind, then
finally, close that door! Remember
the saying, you can catch more flies
with honey? Well....it still holds true,
I have to say. It's time, to turn over a
new leaf, by becoming a better person,
today!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
