Advice To Your Child - Poem by Jessica Lockhart

Advice to who?
Advice for you!
Heed the words I say,
for if you do my dear little one
you'll be mighty okay.

Advice to who?
Advice for you!
Don't grow up too fast,
for if you you do it will lead to many
things you'll miss in your past.

Advice to who?
Advice for you!
Now all I have left to say,
do your best and try your hardest,
I'll still love you either way.

    Nice poem, im pretty much still a child so i understand what you mean, i did rush things and i do miss my past, and your poem riminded me of that so thank you, even if its not much- in my opinion i think this poem deserves a 10 out of 10 (Report) Reply

    It's good. I like the stylistic details particularly. But it seems like the kind of thing I see a lot of. It's a bit generic.6 stars anyhow. (Report) Reply
