Poem: Walk Good!

Updated on March 10, 2012

Walk Good

Your mamma has

always told you

the truth.

Now you could


When she said:

Every grin teeth

is not a smile.

She said

Don’t ever go


This one looks

real .

A reminder of

her lessons.

Looks can be


That's how

they will steal

your heart.

Mamma once

said to me.


it may always


like someone


be laughing

seeing them.

Showing off

their pearly


I am your only


My job is to

teach you

always to avoid



AlI that I have


Is all yours to

know , like

it's only once

a man.

To those who


But twice a


to those who


The only one

thing that

you would

need always


always let life

meet you

trying to

Walk Good !

your time is

directly ahead

and though

it will take a

while .

It's always best

when no one


you are coming

when the lion

who is the


of the jungle


on the prowl.

you may see


starts running!

In this life

your only hurry

should be

learning to

Walk Good!

Every grown man

your eyes would

ever see

Was himself


lust like you

A little baby!

Know that the

road to


will have so


beautiful things


those that are

filled with


just for you!

But they say


it’s not over

till the fat lady


If I was you

I’ll bend over


my mother a


For what you are

seeing now

Can only be


the tip of the


How could you


understand Love

without knowing


Love truly Is?

You need only


continue on to

Walk Good

Life lessons will


be learned in


while you are on

your way.

he who listens.


They will be able

to show

his truth today



All that he has


since that very

f irst day

he will now and



why his mamma


needed him to!

Walk Good!

      Sky - Another great poem with an important message straight from your momma. I am pretty sure the poems I like best are the ones where there is a direct connection to your blessed mother. :)

      I just mailed you a song - it may not be your style since I don't know what kind of music you like, but I was impressed because they are so young and have such great voices. Enjoy! Theresa

      Mama is a very wise mentor in this poem. Life has lots of lessons to reach us through time. Love the statement "Walk Good" because it represents our forward path and how we must let others see how we stand. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks "AE" you know I learn this one and many more in these United States .lol.

      So many things to learn, if we would just listen and this is not only you and I this is the entire human race. And we are still going the long way.

      See the reminder I used the baby squirrel fell and the dog got em, but the mother has one last fight. She won!

      Thanks for reading "AE" and as always you ever positive comment.

      Thanks Eddy and a house is not a home when there? Luther Van dross.

      These are the similarities that will remain forever. Oh that mother of mine . Only yesterday she was telling me about a story with my father and oh man ! I am having a hard time getting a pic to do what I need , so I am going back to the fight. Thanks always Eddy , it's simply a pleasure .

      A beautiful hub here again my friend;warm and caring and your mother was one great teacher;beautiful words.

      Material goods mean nothing to me ;what good is a house full of expensive looking furniture ad the top brand in all.A house from a glossy homes magazine when there is no love;just cold and dark passages in time.

      I reckon your mum did a good job;take care my dear friend .

      I hope you are having a great weekend.

      Bless billy . Sincere thanks . This is a song that I love It was sung by Michael and Paul Mc. As he sang : We all know that people are the same where ever you go . There is good and bad in everyone , as we live learn to give each other what we need to survive , to stay alive.

      Realizing that I looked at life quite differently than quite a few billions ,and knowing that it's My correct way , I stand , just as my father always stay of Julius Cesar , as a colossal among st men.

      Not because I am better , for if they think as I do there is none better than yourself. Better is a misconception , and inferiority complex that only the individual can abolish.

      You are one of those people that I will tell in an e/ mail why the journey through here was successful to begin with.

      Here is one , where else would I have met you Sir?

      It's not just an accident , no part of life is, what happens is people are too tied up to analyze, they would leave that to accident of luck . Those are the two responsible for success and that's so false. Send me an e/mail address. You will wait no longer

      Bless and continue to Walk Good !

      Give thanks.

      Parents especially moms if they raise their children right they will see them become good and intelligent and thoughtful adults. It's a great responsibility and it makes things perfect if the children are also raised to believe in the Lord. God bless.

      Love it my friend and I regret not knowing the wisdom that was your mother. I'm reminded of a movie I saw long ago...the family was dirt poor during the Great had just lost his job and the mother said, "how we gonna make it." Dad looked at her and said, "with love, momma, with love." If there is a higher truth than love I haven't found it yet. Peace my friend!

      Thanks Ann. Fiction is kinda hard for me. My mind as it is takes off on it's own , since I was a little boy and it will never stop , but my only true stop where I can stop is whit my rear Mother.

      You are the second person that ask and you are in great company for asking , but a life without a plan is useless.

      Great suggestion but she is in my book and that's first , she is my prize.

      Finally God hits harder than the Hub Page community and I made my choice. As for me and my house we will serve the lord.

      I have learned until your best serves the purpose for which it's intended , be wise!

      Thanks Ann , a wise comment . Bless.

      Walk good. That's a good phrase. I don't know if your hubs are fiction or if you write with personal experience, but if it is true, I wish to see a photo of your wonderful mom on here.

      She gave good advice. Look at you, a good boy.

      Thank you brethren Frank , The great thing is that to so many of these, your answers show that you clearly understand.

      Can you just imagine the laughter or suspense on the face of a youngster in my birthplace? It will bring a smile to my face .

      When I was young all I has was some left over Spider man, or the one that was my favorite, Tarzan!

      All that I have ever written was not selfish and never for the money , but I knew its many purpose , so to you my brethren , 300 hundred , all my own is more than enough to keep me busy the rest of my life. Ever saw me afraid of those tried to be mu Judas? But I got to know who to warn against . Thanks for all your support.

      Aim for something higher than money.

      Bless brethren.
