Advice for the Young Child


Not now, just wait.

I’m trying to work

and I can’t think straight.



Don’t drop that cup.

You’ll spill all the milk –

I’ll have to clean up



Don’t run ahead.

You’re too fast for me,

walk slower instead.



You play too rough.

It’ll all end in tears

and I’ve had enough.



You’re dreaming again!

You won’t pass that test;

what will you do then?

Advice for the Adolescent


Please use your voice.

Give your opinion

or you won’t get a choice.



Stop stressing out.

Must live a little;

stop living in doubt.



Pick up your speed!

You must try harder

or you won’t take the lead.



Don’t be their prey.

If you don’t fight back

you’ll just fade away.



where you could go.

If you never dream

then you’ll never know.
