A summary of sorts, of the human condition

Brought to you, humbly, in alphabetical position

Carefully arranged to maximize reading pleasure

Don't take life for granted every day's a new treasure

Even when they aren't enchanted or stupendous

Finding joy in it all can be advantageous

Give back when you can, we all need someone to care

Helping your fellow "man," being angels unaware

Intrepid, intense, insightful and inviting

Just a few qualities that make one exciting

Keeping close tabs on our tudes, wiping out negativity

Learning to exhibit control, increases connectivity

Motivational changes can make all the difference

Never doubt your influence you could be someone's deliverance

Optimistically versed, with the skill to equip

Preparing the masses to hone craftsmanship

Quality assurance with attention to detail

Razzle-dazzle the crowds taking energy large-scale

Seriously now, you know where this is going

Trouble comes to us all

Umbrella's only shield from the rain

Very few will skate by

Without their share of pain

Xanadu is a promise we are all hoping for

Yahweh is waiting at the final encore

Zestfully live your life, you've only one life to live

    When I read your title and subtitle, I thought this was gonna be about all the human diseases from A to Z, lol! I loved your poem!

  • Beautifully & sagely written, Kelli. but shouldn't it be "The ABCDeition"? "ABCEdition" kept throwing me off, lol.

    Ooo, I loved the use of Xanadu!! Great stuff as always, Kelli :)

  • Wow! I loved this amazing Abecedarian poem! Packed full of wonderful advice & humour. “ Don't take life for granted every day's a new treasure Even when they aren't enchanted or stupendous Finding joy in it all can be advantageous” I recently experienced this when I was stranded with car troubles! “ Helping your fellow "man," being angels unaware”
