First Things First - Poem by Jenn Kovel

I'm not
One, much
For priorities
As I am quite sure
My list to do
Lacks key
Organizational skills
Where painting nails
And movie nights
Lie far above
'Find a Job'
'Feed the Dog'

And while I am surely
No expert
On the order of
Things to come
Or go, might I suggest that
You go
Find yourself before
You go looking
For someone else

    Agreed! that the deal!
    every man should make....
    know himself.....and weekness and pluses discovered go out into the world!
