Remember to look both ways

my dear Aunt Mae used to say

when I’d leave the house to play

Strong advice from the start

wise, she was; and such a part

of many lessons I’ve taken to heart

Thus, I’ve come to agree

there’s more than one way to see

anything that you may see

Like a door that swings two ways

your view changes, whether you’re coming in or walking away

So, if the door, or what you see, hits you hard somewhere today

don’t forget to always look both ways
