Hard Lessons

Composed 7/14/15
Description: For today’s Daily Prompt: Well, I Never… In which we are describe something we’ve done that we would advise a friend never to do. This is the first thing I thought of. I hope you heed my sage advice.

Life has taught me much, dear friend
In the mere years I’ve been here
I took my trade in people
And I’ve fought some paralyzing fears
I’ve known sickness
I’ve known health
I’ve strolled the streets near poverty
And brushed the bushes of some wealth
Admirations I’ve known
And hated I’ve been
Often a good girl
I’ve danced with sin
In the shadows I’ve hid
On the stage I have sung
I have made some good laughs
And hung with my tongue
My life thus far has been a wise mix
Though the best lesson learned I learned at six
While fun those little petting zoos
Don’t stand behind donkeys in an angel costume
