My mother's lesson in empathy

At the time, I was a five-year old boy
A visit to my aunty, always a joy
My cousin was playing with cars at the back

    Your mother is great! She preaches us to be good, and honest since our childhood.A terrific poem on wisdom.Loved.

    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!)

    I love this life experience and the goodness of the loving hearts displayed so tenderly and silently but so
    gigantic the passions
