Please, Just Listen To Me. Comments

Rating: 4.5
All the lessons I've learned
and tried to pass on.
The knowledge I've accumulated
to make me strong.

Good advice. Children often learn too late that their parents were right all along.

Yes wise children have a lot to learn from parents who give pieces of advice but who are not ruthlessly judgemental.who measure their love to their children by the feathers on their caps.

Read this poem again and remembered when my younger son was 25, he called me up and said, Mom, you were right. About what, I said. Well, remember all those talks and lectures you gave me when I was younger? You thought I wasn't listening to you - well, I was, and you were right about everything. Just wanted to let you know that I appreciate what you've done for me. Thank you, Mom. I love you, Mom. Sometimes they do listen to what you say, they just don't let on that they have. Just wanted to share that with you. Thank you, RoseAnn.

Even if they don't seem to listen, I'm sure the message sinks in really and helps them make the right decisions. A poem that parents can appreciate.

A lovely take heed moment in life. Once it was our turn to roll our eyes and sigh now we create those reactions by merely trying to save the pains. Loved this piece. Rolled easily and sunk in deep. This will be as relevant in 200 years as it is now I think. Karen

Totally identify with you. Family is the greatest! I'm the oldest of eight, sometimes trying to help younger siblings is like talking to the wall, but you keep trying through the years, hoping they'll mature somewhere along the way and actually listen.

Full of meaning holding us captive. The confidence of the youth today is strong, they want only to put their feet forward not to see where ours have been and burnt. Thank you

Excellent Mark - great advice of course, but getting people to take it is another matter. Very well crafted write.
