Weekend Writing Prompt- Advice To Self

Pick up your head,
Don’t stare at the ground.
Question conclusions
Wherever they’re found.
Test things awhile,
Yonder are clues.
Mobs are not ‘experts’.
Facts are not views.

Lie not to yourself.
You’ll have doubts, it’s okay.
Don’t let ‘common knowledge’
Steal Truth away.

    If only these ideas were item one on the news every day, Susan.
    If only we all remembered to think for ourselves.
    Good advice.

      Thanks so much. I believe most of us do think for ourselves… at least, more than the media portrays.

    Wise words, Susan.
    Common knowledge is too often a big lie told so often that people forget how it started.
