100 Words On Saturday Week 2

100 Words on Saturday Week 2100WordsOnSaturdayEverydayGyaan

Introduced last Saturday – an invitation, a prompt, a linky. Write exactly a 100 words on the prompt and publish it on your blog – a story, a poem, a mini-essay. The linky will be open right up to next Friday, after which I will have a new prompt and a fresh linky.

This Saturday, the prompt is: BE CAREFUL

 

Be Careful

“Be careful of the friends you choose
You will become like them”.
“Online friends? Are you crazy?”
Voices.
Advice.
Concern.
I choose not to listen.
I choose to be me.
I choose to be friends with those who
Follow their hearts;
Pursue their passion;
And are happy to be themselves;
I keep in my circle those who
Care about others
Have concern for the world
And reach out in action.
I gather around me those who
Like a good natter;
Love to laugh;
And are eccentric in their own way.
Perhaps I am being careful about my friends after all.

    Lovely poem Corinne 🙂

    Yes we really need to be careful about the friends we have as it is said we become like them and people judge us by the company we keep.

    Love this and couldn’t agree more. I used to run with mean and angry people. Now with you as one of my friends and so many I have met on line and in my AA meetings I have to say I am now surrounded by loving and wonderful friends. I have few left from the past, I pray that they might find peace in their hearts as I have. It is all I can do.

    I loved working with the prompt this week! Thank you, Corrine. I didn’t get a chance to publish it on my blog yet, but I probably will later. I look forward to working with your prompts from time to time and appreciate the opportunity you’ve created for us. Wishing you well.

    Inspiring poem. I have to say that I’m also careful with my friends. I realise that we become the people we hang around, so I choose not to spend my time with bitter people.

    Loved your poem! Very apt …
    Its good to be careful when we make friends.
    Sometimes, when I look back, I realise that a lot of hurt/words could have been saved if I had been a bit more careful!

    So very true, Corinne! I was always annoyed to hear my father advice me about choosing my friends carefully, but I realize how true it is!

    This is a brilliant poem! I have to hold both hands up and admit that poetry is not my strong point!

    Hi Corinne,
    A good prompt, here is mine:
    Be Careful
    ” keep in my circle those who
    Care about others
    Have concern for the world
    And reach out in action.”
    🙂 That is a worthwhile circle to own.

    Lovely Corinne!

    Love the picture – so apt…:)

    Yes indeed, be careful – everywhere and of everyone too. I guess one can’t say anything about how or what turns life would take, though you can be careful 🙂 Nice poem too 🙂

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂
