The Young and the Wise
From the beginning to the end, the time that she had, was spent-by being alone. She never found a good home. She wandered down a long, flat road, through the hot and the blistering cold. She was once told by a Wise One, “Find the good that’s in your heart. Then for you, your life will start. Put a smile on your face. Things will soon fall into place. On a bad day, don’t wander sadly. On a good day, just stay happy. Just try and you will fly away. You will fly away from the bad on a dark day. Now, young one…. That is all and I have to say. Have a great day.” so she wandered, and wandered, and wandered along. She found some good, and she found some wrong. She wished she would have known all along.. that she could find the good that’s in her heart. That for her, her life could start. That she could put a smile on her face. That she could make things fall into place. That she didn’t have to wander sadly, and she could be happy. That she could fly away from the bad on a dark day… Now, she’s living a good life. One day, she ran into the wise one. And she said,” Thanks for all that you have done. I’ve found the good that’s in my heart. Now, Wise One, that’s all I have to say. Have a great day.”
The Wise One smiled back at her.
