how to win every time

how to win every time                            September 8, 2015
it is better to give
than to receive
does not mean
anger and lust and fear

i gave him
the best i had
the treasures of a child
and the love of a mother

and i received
the worst of him
the failures of a man
and the spite of a skunk

i got the better bargain
do you see?

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
