Advice - Poem by Chris Boyles

I hear we should practice what we preach
sometimes to practice is out of our reach.
We give advice as we see through our eyes
sharing our ideas and thoughts with no lies.

None shall take our word unless they choose
tis their choice in life if they are to win or lose.
Offering help we do if it is asked by another
answers we seek how else do we discover.

If not required we should offer no advice
for to assume in this life can cut like ice.
Well have the answers some try to seek
inside ourselves we should take a peek.

For advice can be spoken out so easily
not taking our own advice seems silly.
Be as we are and seek what we do need
sometimes take advice and follow the lead.

In life we are often our own worst enemy
we can give but we cant take it you see.
Preach if we choose and offer our advice
remember to take back some day a slice.
