The Old Man’s Wisdom

Some things that our parents say to us stick. Their words become our inner voice.

Watch your step is what my father said,
being a person of your word’s a must
Once your credibility’s lost you’re toast,
& what you say, others will distrust.

I learnt a lot from my old man
who valued others before him
He gave me an understanding
that beauty lays within.

Unless you’re as sweet as honey
flowing with love as if on tap
there’s no amount of money
that can sweeten the sour sap.

Thanks for always being there!
