An Emergency Tip - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Emergency comes as lightning,
As accidents maybe frightening.
Be it vehicular or suicidal,
Slight bruise or could be fatal?
Death my come to anybody,
you may be poor or somebody.

Just stay calm and compose
Have presence of mind
And do not act loose
Precisely do not go blind.

Just act what you can do
In an emergency let things go
Only give attention to the fact
On making life intact.

    Sensible advice Marvin, but difficult to follow. Some seem to regain composure under stress. Others go to pieces. Accidents can be very confronting experiences. Your last couplet says it all. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply
