Father And Son's Codes

How difficult it is to pursue A moral code that seems so trite For a young son whose modes are new Insisting his thoughts are alright When a bold mind creates a fight. But the choice to stand by my will And show reason to discipline With tough love, I claim and instill That harmful friends are not life's win; And praying our bond won't crack, as kin. Hard Choices Contest by Dr. Ram Mehta From J.Torrente
