DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF

Live beneath
your means.
Stay behind
the scenes.

Return what
You borrow.
Live each day like
no tomorrow.

Own yours,
Don't blame another.
One hand washed
The other.

Listen more,
Speak less.
You're always a
Work in progress.

Do your best
Be on time.
Some things have no
Reason or rhyme.

Handle your business,
No excuses.
Be kind to others
Don't be abusive.

Have a conversation,
Do not fight.
When you leave,
Travel light.

Be nice to people who
Are unkind.
These little things bring
Peace of mind.

Always cultivate,
Good manners.
Be on the look out
For the scammers.

Stay humble, know when
To be quiet.
Be a part of the cause,
Not the riot.

You know when
Enough is enough.
Don't sweat
The small stuff.

I think you have a very fine mind and code of ethics... my favorite set is:

Own yours,
Don't blame another.
One hand washed
The other.

all do well to remember these little things. I like the way you put this together. Neat and concise, short and sweet; not a lot of preachy stuff. I would love to see you write something comedic! I think that you have the style for it. Good write! Nothing to criticize. ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Thank you Geez. I think I will give it a try comedic poetry. That has a nice sound to it. Thanks again.
Best wishes,

A worthy winner that is easy on the eye and fair woos a rhythmic ear.

Well done.

Thank you, sir, for the review. They tell me to stay away from the rhyme scheme. I don't want to. Everything I jot down ends up rhyming. It is what it is. Thank you again.
Best Wishes,
