The Forbidden

The forbidden is always sweeter
I hear some people say
I tend to disagree
For can’t you see
Nurturing the sanctioned
Makes it sweeter every day!

    Not forgetting the guilt you inevitably end up living with. Beautiful reminder here Eileen, well said. Take care, Regards Richard

    Oh yes indeed Eileen...Reminds me of my dad when we were youngsters...I forbid-can't do that-don't you dare-where's my paddle...made us all the more curious and determined...Thanks for the words of wisdom - Tim

    Yes....that is often the case. Parents don't seem to realize that they arouse curiosity by their "stay away from that...it's BAD" attitude! Good one, Tim.
