Let Us Walk The Talk - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Let us walk the talk,
Be true, honest and deep;
Make no promises
That we ourselves cannot keep.

Practice what we preach,
As parents and elders should show;
Because the kids imitate them,
As the youth gradually grow.

Teaching by example
Is effective though made mild;
For what we do is weighed right
In the eyes of a little child.

Let us keep our words
That we tell to youngsters;
Or else they lose trust in us,
Even on serious matters.

Match declaration with deed,
As faith must be coupled with works;
Listen and pay attention to the line:
'Action speaks louder than words'.

Stand to be good role models,
Wearing probity and positive outlook;
Both old and young will admire us,
Let us walk the talk.
