Likes And Dislikes
Author: Barbara Goodhew


People that are nice to us we like.
People that are rude to us we dislike.
We like people that like us,that's easy.
What's hard is liking people, that we make queazy.
The ones that dislike us,are the ones that need us
to like them and teach them kindness.
