The Way It Was - Poem by AHO Speaks

Don't do what I do, Just do what I say
When it comes to your time; you can do it your way.

Life is but segments or stages of human earthly time
I have had my experience for I have done most of mine.

I've made my mistakes and even today still do
Listen to what I say and they won't happen to you.

When you reach the time of my passing age
You will know everything I said, will appear on your very last page.

Children in your life should always be number one
Life is a serious issue but there is always time for fun.

What children want today make them wait until tomorrow
Denial is a good seed to plant and stronger than sorrow.

Life is a time to grow, experience, and undergo human change
Mind, body, and soul and beware; the children want to rearrange.

When it is their time to move on and else to go
Wish them well for their time as participants, in the big show.
