Five a Day


 
We all need five a day
For a healthy life they say
 
Friendship is on my list
Without this I’d be lost
 
Love is another must
Both mine and others forming trust
 
Time for myself to rest and think
Going so fast it can be gone in a blink
 
Understanding others is a test
But reap the reward of you at your best
 
Patience is a virtue I’ve heard
Think of the meaning and not just the word
 
The five listed are not out of my reach
I try to practice what I preach
 
My five a day are not always true
But I do my best I promise you
