 Reflections of My Heart

Please Help Them Understand

 Please Help Them Understand

 Children are born
In total innocence
Things not wanted
Met with total resistance

The youth of today
raised without respect
Parents too lenient
Is a form of neglect

They need the love
That teaches wrong from right
To do as they are told
Not reply with an endless fight

They are not born
With the ability to reason
Parents are responsible
Until they fully season

They have the right
To express what's inside
But keep in mind
The parent must guide

Make sure they know
You cant always protect
Just obey authority
And always show respect

I was not raised
With spoil the child spare the rod
I was taught respect and obedience
And to walk with God

The ways of old
When parents took a stand
It was guidance out of love
Please help them understand

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
