Advice To The Carefree

               Too long you’ve dodged the pendulum of life
             Skipping between the strokes of the clock 
           Dancing away the hope of dreams
        Making a mockery of parents judicial advice
           Time it is to get serious wipe the play from off your lives
             Run to the fields and plant your goals
              What you sow you shall surely reap




For Debbie Guzzi's contest:  Let's Get Serious

    This write is pure fact and the whole truth simply put into a short but very effective poem! I really enjoyed the straight to the point write, we must find ourselves so we can reap the benefits of what we sow(or sometimes accept to bad too)! What an awesome piece, Great Work!!
