(Dedicated to those who struggle)

I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
I will listen to her words
I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
And I won’t do things absurd

I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
And I won’t go out and drink
I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
And put those pills all down the sink

I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
I won’t stay out late at night
I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
And refuse the cigarette light

I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
And I’ll throw the razor out
I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
And no food I’ll go without

I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
I will work hard at my job
I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
And the stores I will not rob

I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
All those cuss words I won’t say
I’ll be smart like mommy taught me
And with strangers I won’t lay

So you be smart like mommy taught you
Always listen to her words
And you be smart like mommy taught you
And please do not do things absurd

The author's comments:
I was about to do something when I thought to make sure it was safe first, and I said to myself, "I'll be smart like mommy taught me. After that, the words began to flow. I discussed many things that teens have problems with such as, drinking, suicide (and or drugs), smoking, cutting themselves, eating disorder, stealing, cussing, and teen pregnancy.
