Don't take life so seriously. No one gets out alive anyways.

My sister’s friends,
6-foot guys who scared
Indecent thugs away,
Content to “trip”
To my five-year-old delight.

Teenage boys,
Sliding down our stairs
On a Barbie Tough Trike
Into a closed door:
I clapped my small hands.

Friendly smiles
On their faces so far
Above mine, also grinning
Laughing and talking

Now men, distinguished
Returning again back
To our same home
Where I am still
And they still humor a child.

The author's comments:
My sister was in highschool when I was pretty little, and almost all her friends were guys. I remember about 5 of these guys clearly, and not only did they save my sister from unfriendly character, but I can still remember how good they were to me. I saw them at my sisters wedding, and every so often they stop by. They're all trying to make the world a better place. I'm not surprised.
