A Word of Advice


Phoebe Taber '23


You can’t be disappointed

If you already expect the worst

The stars shine more brightly

When the moment is unforced


The world will be against you

It can be hard to thwart

I will remind you to prepare

Your soul and your heart


For when your skies crumble

And it seems all is lost

Humanity let you down again

And life’s not worth the cost


Let reality fall away

And become your most resilient

For when you focus on the dark

The stars become more brilliant
