"Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."


I stop.
I wait.
I listen.
But you are not content.

I talk.
I give.
I comfort.
it isn't time well spent.

I think.
I share.
I answer.
You say it's not enough.

I sigh.
I stand.
I tell you:
Just get up and be tough!

For I cannot do everything
that you must do yourself.
It's time for you to take a stand
and get off of the shelf.
Lean on me, and I will tell you,
you will not get far.
But trust yourself and I will promise:
You will reach the stars.

The author's comments:
I love to give advice. But some people just don't know how to do things without someone else telling them how they should run their life. This is for those people. Trust yourself, and you WILL go far.
