Yes, this does apply to me. I love the big font and background..really highlights your plucky and bold words. Each phrase perfectly builds upon the next with great energy.

This is a very intelligent poem, full of good advice that I should apply to myself and that I sometimes forget.
Thanks so much for sharing. Educational and enjoyable.

Your poem, written so long ago, still has words of wisdom. I can never see where agreed, envy and hate ever made anyone's life better. And, I don't believe anyone gets out of this life without some fear, grief and sorrow. It's how you deal with them that makes all the difference. Best wishes.

A very well-written poem about the facts of life that we must choose carefully what we want. If we embrace hatred and envy the sadNess and griefor will be part of your life and we won't find peace or joy.

Your sweetly rhyming piece contains a philosophical gem - the sooner we learn that there's always improvement to be made in how we live our lives, the better.

Your second stanza changes tack a little to suggest that we should avoid all those negatives and focus on the things that make us happy.

All good advice if you ask me!

"Facts Of Life", is an extremely well-written and deftly descriptive piece. This talented poet's work was a pleasure to both read and review. To me, this is a six, but unfortunately I only have fives left. I look forward to seeing your next post.
