LOVE LESSONS

Child be mindful of life lessons taught
Love lessons a lifetime worth
Little eyes and mind patterning future choice
Compass of life formed
Mapping right or wrong from adult form

A father’s smile at a girl child’s stubbornness from birth
Wearing her coat all summer long
Papa I know it’s hot but Red Riding Hood wore her’s none stop
Memories of hours spent reading books together 
Endless question of a mind still growing
Lessons of patience, love and acceptance
Teaching his daughter what manhood consists of

Never a mother’s touch
No connection she was always distance
More of a taker never a giver
An out of town visit she was frustrated 
Wall and Child connected
Lessons of fear, anger, and non-forgiveness
Teaching her daughter mistrust of women

Adult woman accomplished woman 
Choosing the easier path, paper making
Afraid to bear fruit in case it’s sour
Forgetting that half of her was pure heaven
Instead focusing on that she devil’s evil

    Parents do teach life lessons, of course. I like it that the father teaches the daughter about men. It's unfortunate that the mother left a lasting negative lesson. A sad poem, all in all, but fine, telling writing. Jack

    I love to interpret the storiy revealed in a poem. Yours is a great story of a fathers love and the negative teachings of a terrible mother then the struggles of a grown woman who is torn between good and evil. I hope I got that right. Thank you for your kind words on my poem A Mystical Place.
