Little Boys

Little boys are lots of fun
As you see them play and run
Their pockets are always full
Of things that are never dull.

They have a hard time growing up
They make your life overflow its cup
They are a child still
But want to be a man with skill.

They want to be a man in mommy’s eyes
Especially whenever she cries.
He will be the cause of many of those tears
And some of your greatest fears.

He will be one of your greatest blessings
And he will teach you some lessons.
So dedicate his life to Christ
And he won’t be quite as enticed.

Teach him about God and love
And all the things sent from above.
Pray for the wisdom to raise him right
And everything will come out alright.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
