New Car Finish Relationship

I like to compare a relationship/marriage
To a brand new car
When it's new you wash it
Very careful when you drive it
You constantly wash and wax it
You don't even eat in it
Because you don't want
Anything to happen to ruin it
As time goes by you become
Comfortable to eat in it
And you don't wash and wax it
As much as you use to
Slack up on all the things
That you use to do
Don't take it in to check for repairs
Only for an inspection
Once a year
Everything is wonderful when you start
But even a new car loses it value
Once you drive it off the lot
Well a relationship/marriage
Is a lot the same
As time goes by
Things change
Like a car
Things are great when it's new
But what happens when dings and bumps
Come along it's only purpose
Is to make you strong
Will you see it for what it is
Only a test
Will you go through the mess
And all the stress
So when years goes by and your car
Goes from 30 day tags
To Classic license plates
You are in control
Of your relationship's fate
Through it all
Everything and every mistake
Anything can work
When things are brand new
But when things becomes old
What will you do
Will you make the necessary
Repairs or will you
Trade it in
I am just sayin! ! ! ! !

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;
