My Boys

A Poem by Vidya Bacchus
"

Just some thoughts

"
                                                My Boys

I just wanted to say to my boys,
I may not always be here,
To yell at you and make you see reason,
So I wanted to say to you,
Treat women with as much love and respect,
As you would me.

Don't be a follower be a leader,
Always be kind and look out for your sister,
Like your uncles look out for me,
Be mindful of your father,
And look to him to see who and what a man is.
Because he is the best example.

I have to be honest some days I want to return you guys,
But no one would take you and I would miss you,
Even if you drive me up a wall more often than not,
Life is short and it goes by fast,
Before you know it you'll be men,
But be the best men you can be.

Think before you act,
Even if I don't we've established I'm looney,
Because every decision has consequences,
And you'll have to deal with them,
That's all I got for now,
Know I love you and I get it now "boys will be boys"

Wisdom to boys, the universal unsaid teachings of all mothers around the world.

The flow and structuring is kept simple as in the other two works I've read. I enjoyed this and felt it.
Thanks for sharing.

Yeppy:))))))))))))))))))) miles of smiles
I would print this in a big font, put it in a frame and hang it on the wall in their room. it would look so much better than any certificate or diploma. and when they are big enough, they'll cherish this bit of wisdom.
I rest my case!

"every decision has consequences,
And you'll have to deal with them,"

Wow. Powerful expectations they have and powerful advises to cherish and hold on. The best examples are earned and shared. Excellent...:)................

Perfect pazzo. look at your soft underbelly showing here....! For our boys, we do it all, even though they drive us to the brink of insanity sometimes....

Treat women with as much love and respect,
As you would me.

Your sweet boys will grow to be fine men if they heed your words, sweet Vidya.

My youngest starts school this year and the thought makes me cry...partly because his father won't be there. But also because he is my last child and the world is a crazy place. I worry about him as mothers do...

This is a beautiful poem for your much loved boys...
