For My Fellow Parents... Poem by Lee Degnan

For My Fellow Parents...

Rating: 5.0


Parents, your duty calls...
the mission is one amazing feat
One that requires great skill with
all the responsibilities you will meet

From a helpless little baby
you're to do all the fill-in
And see to it that you raise
the next generation's men and women

I know it's not an easy role
and for this not everybody's fit
But it's a job with great rewards
if you only put your heart into it

Kids minds are like hungry sponges,
their hunger to learn just won't quit
And frightening to know that it's all up to you
as to what you put in it

So feed their minds by teaching them
it's what keeps them growing
Teach them love, honor, respect, compassion,
and to do that is by SHOWING! !

Being a parent is a life-time job
a task that will never be complete
But one thing that you MUST do
is make yourself obsolete

Don't forget to give them lots of happy times
it's something parents can't forget to do,
'Cause when they grow up it's those stories
that they'll tell their kids to

So I write to wish you all the best
and pray for your success too
Because your child could change the world....
Solely on his reflection of you.
