A Child's Response To A Mother's Scolding
Harsh words can make a child cry
Have you ever heard them in a lullaby?
Wiping tears from my face
As a way of condolence?
You have no rights to make people cry!
It's the thing I want to clarify!
If you know my pain
Next time you'll keep your anger in rein
The parent's response
Scolding is not to invite you to cry
Life is not a lullaby
Take my advice
Things are not always nice
Don't blame others for your tears
Instead be thankful with prayers
I'm sorry I lost temper
Next time I'll try humor
She Is My Love
Sometimes she smiles cheerfully like a sweet cherry
Sometimes she loses her temper jumping like a bouncing ball
Sometimes she tells you stories that are full of imagination
Sometimes she speaks words that are coined by herself
Every now and then
