Just a note-Humbleness is a virtue

Be careful when going up a ladder Be kind to those you meet Remember,going down that ladder the same people you will greet

I love how your poem says so much in such a simple way. Sometimes it seems I try the hard way and climb the chutes too, just like a kid going up the slide, and down comes someone to instantly knock you to the bottom again...maybe this thought could be a part two to your terrific write?

WOW, Charmaine... I know that sounds corny, but that was literally my reaction. Such a short concise poem that packs a punch. It'd be mighty embarrassing meeting the same people again, coming down (if you were unkind that is). I really enjoyed reading Richard's response... bringing up supporters is a much more noble cause than just exalting yourself!

So very true. Kindness begets kindness And if it doesn't it is because of the other person Being psychologically damaged and moving on Is the best solution. I know you already have this figured out ....thanks sweet lady for your kind comment SuZ

Hi dear friend my poem is not about people having phsycologicsl problems.If they do i don t move on i help them out.I never moved out on my dad coming to that.This is just about not thinking we re better than others and not looking down on anyone.Sorry if my words aren t well expkained and tnks for stopping by

my, such wise words that truly sparkle.. love the flow and diction... perhaps you may want to put a space between 'Becareful'.. i have those moments myself... this one can also be considered as rhyme, think so?.. otherwise, splendid!..:)
