!! Attitude Change !!

A brand new day, fresh like blooming flowers
Taking the edge from the words you spray

Today I will praise knowing every day I learn to crawl first,
Watch you trip all over yourself when my foot is out.
I'll take the books you read, and scrape your eyes from all judgement 
Like catnip, you can sit under my cat paw like a pigeon with broken wings

I will close my eyes, and use you like a walking cane,
See it to believe it, like burning rain

Cover you with a blanket, and teach you how to count change
Clear my mind from all opinions, shut you out from improper thoughts.

Water the oak sides and do break off any unneeded branch from your tree
Cut you like a flower, and show you how it is to stand out

Pledge the world clean, and show you the dirt falling from your face
Keep you in the shadows where you can't escape my flames
Enjoy the whispers, of my taunts that stain your dreams
In with the new, get rid of the old.  ( ATTITUDE !)

    I sometimes need a good serving of all of those things! This was one of those poems that makes you take a look at the inside of your soul and heart and see if it is time for a spring cleaning. Wonderful words of wisdom!!!
