We think we care for others,
by Regena Kilgore
when were caught up in our own.
Ours actually engulfs us,
leaving us all alone.
We can never see this,
for we look through our own eyes.
Nor do we hear what others say,
it sounds as if its lies.
Our own heart will decieve us,
without even meaning to.
We often think others percieve us,
as we ourselves do.
Pain brings misery, misery brings strife,
strife brings destruction, to our life.
'Always treat others with respect,
you shall gain it too.'
'Give a smile to everyone you meet,
and you will get a few.'
If we could only listen,
when advice is handed our way,
Not have to learn, on our own,
for this we certainly do pay.
So don't live your life on just feelings,
they can mess you up.
Build on the base of wisdom and knowledge,
and each morning...have a cup!
