Best Annalise A.K.A. Audrey Haick Poems

+ Fav Poet


Quite often it seems we tell kids, it’s best to be first
They sign up for fun; parents, it seems, for the fame
Whether it’s academics or sports, why not just let kids thrive?

Create environments for learning and fun needed to thrive
Nurture with affection and love; be their springboard first
Build the foundation they will need to handle future fame

A solid foundation will ensure an easy adjustment to fame
In any circumstance, self- assurance makes anyone thrive
Teach them, the game of life is not won by coming in first

Good character first, may lead to fame in which anyone can thrive

    How true. I agree that character is necessary to handle fame. Perhaps becoming a person of character is more important than being well known or popular. I can tell you put some serious thought into this.

    True words of wisdom, Annalise...Parents' so-called 'good intentions' often go awry and we seem to forget that a child just being and feeling loved is the key - Tim
