Role Models

These role models nowadays
Role models, role models
They don't cover up
They show you no respect
They pee in public
They drink and drive
They go to rehab just to take a break
They spit in your face
They believe money is everything
They think size five makes you fat
Justin Beiber, Miley Cyrus, and Lindsay Lohan, all the kids follow them because they're there role models, role models following in there footsteps.

And we wonder why our kids act bad
They hit you
They steal from you
They lie to your face
They think head isn't even sex
They sneak out
They text and drive
They party all the time
They don't even make good grades
Divorces, lack of God and no parenting to show them how to act. Role models role models the kids or watching all the time

Our world has come to
putting them in front of a television
Handing them a cell phone
Telling them to get away
Letting them choose there curfew
Yelling at them
Not educating them
Using them for child support
Living off the government
Choosing not to discipline them
Our Kids having babies, being too busy, and broken promises.
Role models, role models we all have a role model

We need God in our hearts so we can
Tell them we love them
Kiss them daily
Check over them
Put family first
Help them
Be a supportive parent
Talk with them
Give them structure
Listen to them
Keep them in church
But most of all be there role model, role model to look up too

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
