    My mother, incredibly sweet, incredibly bright
    Swallowed her anger but asked in a voice, slightly tight
    Please consider for a minute or two

    Wow! What a wonderful Mom you have, Aufie, bless you both. I adore the patience and the skill she used to impart to you how wrong it was to take the car without permission. She taught you a lesson for life. This poem is a very loving and beautiful tribute to your beloved Mom. All children have so much to thank their Mother's for, but some don't see that until it is too late... A joy to read! I love your work, it is so simply presented and that is an art which is so pleasing to me. It is straight to the point and you are a natural born story teller, you narrate so eloquently! Thank you for sharing. I so enjoyed reading. Blessings... (Report) Reply

    Only a few minutes later, it is hard to believe
    My cousin was called and he had to leave
    This left us alone, that beautiful car, and me
    The temptation was great, as great as could be,
    I could not resist and became a thieve (Report) Reply

    This is an incredible poem, and I loved how you showed a great lesson learned
    in a poem. Your mom was a really smart woman, and it is amazing that I also
    learned about stealing in a very similar way, long, long ago. Though it was a
    similar incident but taught to me by a friend....by explaining how I would feel.
    I love this excellent poem! (and reminding me of an important life lesson once learned!) (Report) Reply

    Your mom approach is one of the most classy and true one, to educate is not by strict act but must the using mind, soulful effect...being soft can turn harder thing to give up...If you go to cave, find the place where the water dropp on the stone, or if you near to beach see what the sea water can do to the stone, it can change the shape of the stone..it maybe takes time but it will shape them perfectly without broken...softness is not weak but it just wiser, coz it will be harder to do this for who have no patient in heart_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
