21st Century Proverbs...more will be added, you wait and read...


a mirror
does not always reflect

seeing
is often limited

clothes
hide the man

a smile is no smile
without matching eyes

Mother and Father
are not titles or names
but indicate biology

friends
are those you choose
to love you
as you are

miles are more than roads
but wrinkles
and scars
the pathways
we wear on the inside

animals see far better
than their eyes
their hearts have
special talents

a hand up
can readily slap you down
a hand out
can have strings
but those who have nothing
give all they have

Meloo Straight From Her Tilt-a-World

random thought dots and suppositions...suspect to change
and the changing of the mind and times....
