~IMPRESSIONS


Important, first impressions,
For we all seek to impress.
Deceptive, first impressions,
If we meet one in distress.
Trust those first impressions
But account for man’s duress.

Important, first impressions,
For they set acquaintance pace.
Inclement first impressions
Many years may not erase,
As friendship bears impressions
Of that first discomfort’s trace.

Reject the first impressions
Of one who would deceive
By flattering impressions,
‘Tis a fool who would believe,
And bitter last impressions
Are the insults you’ll receive.
