Young Child You Must Prepare Yourself

“Young Child You Must Prepare Yourself”

Young child you must prepare yourself,
for the decisions in life you make,
for everything you decide to do,
holds a consequence at stake.
Every wrong step is a set back,
and no efforts means no gain,
to deny yourself an education,
no knowledge is stored in your brain.

Preparing yourself means to study,
this shows that you’re approved,
to reach the points you must in life,
you must know all the moves.
Listening with attentive ears,
to your elders when they’re speaking,
will give you wisdom never found,
in the places in which you’re seeking.

Preparing yourself means to observe,
to see what’s happening around you,
before mistakes come halt them,
and they’ll never be back to hound you.
Being right the first time up,
you’re on to the next in line,
by striving for the first time go,
will keep you from falling behind.

Preparing yourself means doing,
the things that need to be done
proceed with caution until you’re through,
and then you can have your fun.
Make achieving your goal a priority,
in all you wish to be,
or else you’ll make a lot of mistakes,
because that’s what happened to me.

I wasn’t prepared within my life,
for things which were to come,
I’m very old and nothing yet,
to me I’m stupid - dumb.
Though I’m not a fool complete,
my errors will now be few,
by getting myself prepared in life,
the way in which I’ve told you.  Amen

“Young Child You Must Prepare Yourself,” (Proverbs 8:1-36)

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
