Comments about Walterrean Salley
Be Good To Yourself
Be good to yourself—
You deserve it.
Take care of yourself
While you're here.
No one else can do it
Better than you.
Hold yourself up.
Don't be your worst enemy.
Nor a 'self hater, '
Like some love to do.
Live and enjoy life.
Look in the mirror and smile.
Believe that good things
Will happen for you.
Be grateful that you were
A candidate for life.
And let such gratitude
Make the best choices for yourself.
And eat properly.
For on such things the body thrives.
Love yourself, ...
It's Her Time
I counted the wrinkles in her hands
Whom life had subtly passed by.
She got no visits and no mail,
No one phoned her to say hi.
On the table by the window,
A lovely portrait of her youth.
With feeble hands she caressed
The image that so seemed to soothe.
