Just Smile – Ch#58 (Just one thing)

Look at these cute and crazy kids,

They’ll soon be monster, pouting, teens,

Ignoring what the world forbids,

Wishing they ‘so’ weren’t from OUR genes.

Wild hormones ensure counter-bids.

Their thinking brains are not, meanwhile,

Developed by the longest mile;

Give them the benefit of doubt.

In the end, they too, will work out,

After all, we did! – Let’s, just smile! 😇

Chapter 58 – Summary from the Wisdom of Sarah-Jayne Blakemore

The post has been inspired by If I Could Tell You Just One Thing by Richard Reed.

Over the 62 days, in Dec and Jan, my challenge is to share the learning from each of the 62 chapters; hopefully in a poem, but who knows?  Follow my progress with the #JustOneThing Tag

Happy to explore what you make of the post in the comments below? 🙂
