Universal Truth

Children must be allowed

To make of their lives what they will.

Let them make mistakes,

Share disappointments, hopes and thrills.

Let them choose which friends to make:

Some will come and some will go;

The best remain through everything;

And most of all they have to know

The same applies to lovers –

Broken hearts can mend

And each romantic interlude

Stays with you to the end.

  1. Ah, such wise words. This is true: in all aspects of life, we must be left to learn these things for ourselves. It is only then that true and meaningful growth can occur.
