Often in life you start questioning yourself about the challenges that you deal with daily. Can I? Should I? Would I?
Most of us know and choose which battles we are willing to take on and tackle and some of us even know which challenges are really meant to be left alone.
This Poem by John Ciardi, titled "I Wouldn't" is a whimsical way of dealing with such thoughts.
There's a mouse house in the hall wall
With a small door by the hall floor
Where the cat sits all day,
Sits that way all day
Every day just to say,
"Come out and play"
To the nice mice in the mouse house in the hall wall
With the small door by the hall floor.
And do they come out and play
When the fat cat asks them to?
Well would you?
