Teach The Children

Poem by Sheron Regular

It's a blessing to teach our children, in life that's how they grow.
The things they see in life are pictures of some things they should know.
When given your baby at birth you should train yourself to be
As close to perfect in living you're a parent now, with a family.
There's things that are except able as parents we can still do,
But respecting yourself in manner will help your child to respect you, too.
Teach your children the basic rules "Thank You", "Yes" and "Please".
"Excuse me Mommy or Daddy", "Uncle John, would you help me please".
"Auntie I love being with you", "Can you show me how this is done".
And learn to show affection to your child it gives them character and self esteem.
They'll need that at the end of their day when they reflect in silence or pray.
Don't always look so solemn or depressed, do things to keep your spirit free.
Select your words in teaching your child, your tone is important you see.
Money is what we use in exchange to acquire the things we need.
But, you can't buy the bond that's shared with children, this is worth more than greed.
Spend time with your children, be a parent, an example, then a friend.
Discipline must be given it strengthens our morals from within.
This is our creators world we're sharing along with him.
So, use your time wisely being a father, a mother and a friend!

    Excellent themes, use shorter lines unless you want very free verse, since about teachings maybe more discipline in meter. countered with playful meters, not much ABABA form if so? ? ?(Report)Reply
