It’s Quadrille Monday! Are you here to play?  
Just 44 words is all you have to say. 
Include a word we choose. Yep! that’s the game. 
Now, come and poem your way to Quadrille fame! 
The word is BOTHER.

Dare To Define Yourself

You’ll build a ‘safe space’,
It’s called self-esteem.
Pursue your own business,
Your life : Your dream.

Reject unkind comments.
Their problem. Who cares?
Don’t bother to focus
On others’ affairs.

Not here to force,
Belittle, or preach.
Keep seeking balance,
Define your own reach.

  1. The distractions can take their toll if you let them, so true! The ego seems to be the thing that loves to follow the toxic bread crumbs…

  2. Wonderfully wise! 💝💝 I especially love; “Reject unkind comments.” Yes, we must never let such things bring us down. 🙂

  3. Such a kind, thoughtful piece — especially that last stanza. Balance is slippery for me to achieve, but it’s really nice when I have it for a bit.

Tell me something good...
