Giving Advice – a villanelle

Is it right to try to comfort someone else
When you hear of the hurt they are feeling
Especially if it is something you deal with.

When we are young in love little do we know
Decisions and choices don’t mean as much
Is it right to try to comfort someone else.

As we mature, we realize the hurt can come
We can relate to their heartache and loss
Especially if it is something you deal with.

Years ago we might have tried to laugh it off
Now we understand how they might feel
Is it right to try to comfort someone else.

Years ago it might take a night to fall in love
Now we advice others to take time to heal
Especially if it is something you deal with.

Everyone deals with how it might be different
And each reacts in their own way to thoughts
Is it right to try to comfort someone else
Especially if it is something you deal with.

  2. Hi Charles, if you click edit, go to text, above “Is it right to try to comfort someone else” you will see a very short code, you can put that between a photo and writing so that they do not overlap.

    You could write it down.
