You were right, I was wrong

As children, she wouldn’t buy us sugary things
Wouldn’t let us enjoy Pepsi or Cola drinks
Impelled us to drink non-fat milk all the time
And let us not watch TV after school time.
I hated all these envious of my friends
Who grabbed Pepsi, Remote and all modern trends
She did all without Google,
I was wrong and you were right all the time, mom

    How right you are.... The old adage tells us that the older we get the wiser our parents become. Moms are particularly wise with age..... Loved your poem.... Jake

    Yes, Dr. Ram! Excellent thoughts seems we don't appreciate our parents when we are young. Then we grow up...Love and blessings, Rhonda

    Wonderfully written. Mothers are always right....we just don't see it as children.

    As I've gotten older, I now realize how right my parents were about so many things. Of course, when we're young, we think we know it all and fail to heed the wisdom of our parents, who draw on the life experience we lack. In retrospect, I wish I had listened so many times. Completely related to this piece, Doc; good job :)

    Lovely. It is a sad and wondrous day when we realize our mothers were right all along.
