Grandpa once said

Grandpa once said

A Poem by Lingering Soul

Image result for grandpa art


Never leave a place where you are mocked
For you will learn respect through the disrespectful

Never abandon a setting of extreme unfairness
For you will learn compassion 

Never exit a room of gossipers
For you will never become more beautiful

Than enduring that with a smile 
Within his words we both drew a line

Between love and hate

Boy .... was grandpa right !!

Thank you Cassie
I agree with you - my grandfather was right too. It boiled down very simply to this: "Love is much better than hate."
