(poems from my youth)

Encourage Me.

Aim me,
like an arrow,
And I will score within my goal.
Inspire Me,
in every way and just watch
my life's success story unfold.
Encourage me,
just like a child
to do what's right every time.
Criticize me,
and you'll see prosperity be mine.
Fabricate my
self esteem and
understand how I truly feel.
Guide my paths,
the best way you can,
and my allegiance will
be revealed.
Enlighten me,
when I don't comprehend,
so I will know what's
right from wrong.
And please,
Remember me,
when I depart and
I'll be thankful
for you,
when I'm gone.
