Lessons Past

Do not fear little one to let your intelligence show
There is nothing more to say about the deadly combo
Of brains and beauty
Charm them with your beauty
Overwhelm them with your wit
There is nothing more satisfying than to look back and see your own splendor
Years from now
That will be the talk of the town
Just smile my darling
And learn to act
Play the part of the charming child
Naive in appearance
But modestly intelligent
Act as though it does not matter
Pretend that you do not care for their praise
We are all actors in this superficial world
Learn to let things go
Don’t let the acid burn too long
And always remember
To be true to your heart
your dreams
and your loved ones
Never let go of your imagination

Prompt: create a gift to your elementary aged self
