Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “instructions.” Write instructions for anything you know how to do. As detailed or as rambling as you’d like. Enjoy!


Told what to do
The rebel revolts
Perhaps they know better
But I don’t really care
Best learnt
When I discover myself
Their experience
Is not for nought
But mine will remind me
The lessons are tough
When you don’t follow instructions
That your parents gave out
But don’t bog down in detail
Give them some freedom
To figure it out
For growth is not given
The optimal chance
When the path is laid out
Step for step
And you’re always there
To catch every stumble
Pulling them up
