Be Good - Her Best Advice
Four sisters, each one seemed to have a light
inside her soul, and in their neighborhood
they didn’t stray or get into a fight.
Their mother did not have to say “Be good.”
They simply were! Perhaps because they knew
her life was hard, so they just did their best
to entertain themselves; these children grew
in harmony until they left the nest.
Not disobedient or doing drugs
like some kids do, they went to school, then wed,
raised children of their own and gave them hugs.
They well remembered what their mother said:
“Be good at being you, for you are nice
already! That’s my mother’s best advice.
