Filial Enlightenment

January 23, 2009
By Rafael Quevedo, Perris, CA

Though we may call them preachers

Parents are our greatest teachers

We may find their love is ample

And follow then their good example

Or condemn their ways as twisted

Not remembering that the Almighty our ways too has listed

We say their heads are hollow

And that there ways we'll never follow

We ignore and choose to exclude

That which our affair would surely conclude

To recognize that their mistakes we must not replicate

But instead appreciate

For they've given us everything we must not do

So from this day forth, let your soul shine true.
