Words of Wisdom- for We Write Poems

I collect words of wisdom,
mantras, compasses, touchstones.
Real is better than perfect.
When all else fails be kind.
Be the change you seek.
Do it now.
Choose love, not ego.
Give yourself to love, if
love is what you're after
.
candles, anchors, guideposts,
I collect words of wisdom.
