when at crossroads
stop, pause a while,
fix the dilemma.
dilemma fixed now,
stop pausing
and cross the roads.


Now go join the NaisaiKu Challenge.

Thanks Andy, I am lovin' writing those!

Love the way you did this, it reminds me of:
Summers coming
and she's twenty eight bags
of sugar overweight
Every day at the gym,
bikini fits now
she can swim
