    Sometimes we need to listen to others.

    Sometimes We Should Listen to Friends

    To all my friends,
    Tonight I let you down.

    I don't know why.
    Why I didn't wait.

    We were supposed to meet,
    but you all were late.

    My emotions got away from me.
    My friends said with a frown.

    I was angry at you.
    Why, I don't know.

    I never learned any patience.
    My friends have always said so.

    If I had listened
    to what my friends said 


    Then, I thought. I just,...
    I just might not now be dead.

    A great poem you've meticulously created concerning the importance of listening to friends.

    Standing Bear--your eloquence amazes me, knowing your difficult childhood. You must have learned the correct way to speak the English Language and write. You were very smart and must have had some hellish good teachers.

    Mandi..thank you for your kind words. It's a gift, I was reading books before kindergarden...moved up from the 6th grade in elementary school to 11th grade in high school due to my reading, math, etc.. levels..mostly i'm self taught though I did have some good teachers here and there.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
