What is it?


What can wound you and heal at the same time,

Or lift you up and throw you down to a dime.

Regret when you have spat the wrong ones out,

Degree of class revealed by it,

Spicy, sweet or sour, it’s got flavors for it.

    really like this. but I do think the emboldened font gives the mystery away lol

    • JudyStella

      On second thought I think so too😅 I guess when I came up with it first I must have thought highlighting it would look cool😂 Gotta avoid that in future! Thanks for your comment 💖

          Usually my big mouth, but I'm working on it. Don't drill the hole there, you halfwit. Okay, maybe work harder.

          • JudyStella

            Keep working 😂

            I get why you would call it a riddle rather than a poem but i still like it! It's short and "to the point" which makes it easy to understand and drives you to think about it a bit. Good job 👌!!! Keep it up. I'm hoping to see moreee😊

                My brain is trained to read left-right, and it took a few times to get it to read top to bottom, but I got there. I love it! And you are absolutely right about words. Very clever write my friend!
