In The Mist

Show Me Many Ways

I look at a new born baby and it's proud parents

So happy

They can't wait to teach their child all they know

For years they will take care of the greatest wonder of their lives

Watching their baby grow up

Making mistakes and learning how to do everything

With the help of their parents they will go to school and learn about life

Then some eighteen plus years later they are given the chance

To take all they know and create their own bundle of joy

Where they are now the parents

They now have to teach their baby right from wrong

Keeping their baby safe and away from harm

Explaining there are bad people in the world

Which you will see

If you look around you will know in your heart and mind

Most of our world is made up of good people

Sure we all have made our share of mistakes

That is what life is about

So we can learn and help each other

Then one day we can look back at our lives and be proud

Leaving behind all our greatest achievements for other people to see

"Most of our world is made up of good people. . .So we can learn and help each other." These lines are very heartening. Good poem altogether.

MsDora There would be no purpose in living if we were outnumbered by bad people. The odds are always in our favor occasionally the bad do leave a bad impression. it is up to each person to do all they can to do the right thing when given a choice. If you surround yourself with people who are good positive influences you can both feed off each other and get through the toughest times. Thank you so much for reading and commenting.Have a beautiful day.

Hello Michael.

How true your line about good people ! The good is prevailing in rising new generation ;- besides good is behavioral. The children are in general copying they parents / grandparents, siblingsā€¦ What a privilege to leave the world better place, than it was at our arrival.

Voted beautiful.

Michael-Milec As long as we keep teaching our children what we have learned that has helped us in life it can help them move forward. Maybe they won't have to endure less sad and unhappy experiences and focus their time on living well. Thank you for your comments and views.

Gypsy Rose Lee I keep trying to uncover my feelings deep beyond the surface. To find what drives me to write and learn. Trying to remember my past while creating my future. Thank you for reading and sharing.
