be careful!..

image by Alex Stoddard

it is easier to destroy life
than to create it...

so be careful!..

when you happen to mess it up
it is hard to gather things
and mold it again.

so be careful..

bad situation.
it is hard to get people's support
and understanding
to start all over again.

so be careful...

the worst case is
when you start hating yourself.
and feeling like
you want to self-destruct...

so be careful!..

  1. Also a lot of self-recognition for me in this. I wish it were easier to be careful! *smile* However, a very nice piece of writing!

  2. ParengJJ,
    True enough! Good thoughts and good advice! We may not be able to be an angel for 100% of the time. But it would be ideal to be aware and accomplish some!


  3. Much agreed... life is so very fragile... lovely take on the prompt!

    1. how true man...we should take care with all our life and our decisions ...and we will screw up but must in that give forgiveness to ourselves and others...

  4. you're right, self-loathing is not a good thing

    altered states

  5. A lovely poem of caution and hope.

    (I really like that word CelebrAsian in the notice following your poem.)

  6. Indeed JR , come winter he will be frozen solid, like Han Solo !

  7. Nice write! The repetition works really well.

  8. Dear JJ: "So be careful" ok...good philosophy~! no "self-destruct"...May 4, "CelebrAsian!.." sounds fantastic...and a worthwhile charity. Bright Blessings~!!!

  9. Totally fresh and original. Congrats.

  10. It’s good to repeat that warning - like a mantra, before we live to regret!


Your comment are highly appreciated!.. Maraming Salamat Po!..
