My Recipe For Life

A Poem by Debra Stevens Edwards (debby)

A recipe for a good life.


My Recipe For Life


Start with a fresh positive attitude,
Add 3 heaping table spoons of Gratitude,

Next 2 cups of pre-softened tolerance,
Add a dash of zest and exuberance,

Blend gently and throw in some yokes,
Add humor to taste and some old fashion jokes,

Add education and wisdom in equal parts,
And then this is the filling for these tarts,

Now it's time to make your crust,
Start with a generous cup of trust,

Add 3 cups of love, 1 cup forgiveness too,
The faith of a child, Make a good life for you.


Enjoy it...

If only everyone followed this lovely recipe. Like all great ideas, which make people say "Why didn't I think of that?", it's simple and elegant.

May you never go hungry.

This poem is one of the most creative I've seen in a while. I loved it! Great job!

My favorite line;
"Next 2 cups of pre-softened tolerance,
Add a dash of zest and exuberance, "
