Theme for 2018 is a one lined quote that gives me inspiration for a poem.

These quote are copied from Goodreads.com – tag poetry.

“It is strange how often a heart must be broken, before the years can make it wise.” ― Sara Teasdale, 

Beauty of Old Age Rewards

Wisdom, is realising you know nothing,
everything is not like it used to be,
listen, closely, what others are saying.
Depression, try laughter it’s guaranteed
avoid stress try learning to live carefree.
Don’t try pleasing everyone, please yourself,
forget all the bad things and pride oneself.
True, sad heart will repair if you let it,
hold to your dreams, don’t live life on a shelf.
Wisdom is, learn to laugh not throw a fit.

    • I agree with you about rolling off the tongue, I tried but I just couldn’t get it to work for me, just wasn’t my day for writing poetry, I was feeling tired, been weeding the garden all morning, perhaps I had had too much sun. Cheers to writing poetry everyday.
