The following is a poem of advice from an author unknown. I came across this today as we were cleaning out a drawer. I either found this poem and wrote it down or wrote it myself. To be frank, I can remember neither course of action. It is written as advice, likely more specific to a young man, perhaps a teen lad.
My advice to you is to bathe often.
A stinky man is forever wanting of company.
My advice to you is to say thank you frequently.
An ungrateful man is forever wanting of company.
My advice to you is to spread kindness through good deeds.
An unkind man is forever wanting of company.
So, be clean, be grateful and be kind and be forever wanted as company.
If you know its source, please let me know. I cannot find it on the web. The only reason I may have written it is the first piece of advice as I read where a woman prefers a clean man. So, it is best to present the best version of yourself. Plus, I do my best to try and be the last two. Truth be known, I have no pride of authorship and don’t hold this up as any paragon. I just like the message.
