Bedtime Story

I hope you listen closely to what I’m about to say,

These things will help you learn and grow each and every day

Don’t dwell on bad situations that happened in the past,

Just enjoy life in the present because time will pass by fast

 

Remember who you are and the individual worth you possess

Even when making mistakes you have divine nature nonetheless

Your decisions in life can either end in despair or delight

Those choices bring accountability, a destiny you simply can not fight

 

Attaining knowledge through experience is what it’s all about

Have faith and trust in yourself instead of harboring doubt

Invest time in doing selfless acts of service and good works

Taking a stand for integrity and virtue also has its perks

 

Build friendships with people who will lift up and value you

But respect and be kind to everyone no matter what you do

“Long ago I knew I’d want to tell you kids this,” she read

I hope you listened closely to all that I have said
