The handwriting on the wall

Yes, she knew and we knew

 His voice shook the halls

She was a bit of a shrew

But cringed as gossips stared

Her assignment not prepared

She was hired coz she had guts

She knew he was nuts

Well, I knew she had it in her

She could make a lion purr

Yep, I learned a lesson that day

There’s a lot to be said about

Wanting to do it my way

    A forthright poem, standing up, and being our true individual self.

    I thought I’d at least secure one Norwegian flag on your counter, but I guess they don’t much like Norwegians? So I’ll drop a comment as well. May be someone will wake up?

      Wow! are you back? Maybe I have to add Norway to my counter? I was under the impression most countries are available.

        I thought the flag counter automatically gave you the number of ‘likes’ from each country as they came in? You should NOT have to define which countries you wanted registered, but perhaps that’s something new?

    You captured the spirit perfectly. The repercussions are always there, and how one responds becomes the deciding factor. Thanks for joining in!

      Thank you, Reena. It is how one responds. Conflicts can be turned into an opportunity.

    Doing it my way and believing in it is such a positive attitude to have. Great response Eugenia.

    You know, I was a teacher before retiring, and this was the greatest reward I could get, when a student found out his or her own way. Learning whatever skills you need, it is always your own way that does the trick. Not the way I did it but your way. This perhaps isn’t exactly what your poem is about, but it reminds me of those good moments.

    Thank you for your comment and it is exactly what I meant. I agree it is doing it our way that does the trick. Right or wrong, we learn from it.

    This poem painted storylines in my head. A lot said in simple words.
